A.I. based bionic knee hits market

Thought this was a nice one..

'What makes the Rheo-Knee different is that it's the first to use artificial intelligence -- tiny sensors that analyze the knee 1,000 times per second allowing it to adjust to any step or misstep'

By the way: It costs $30.000, you can watch the 3D-video here & download the official brochure (pdf) here

By the way 2: The term Bionic describes the application of biological principles to the study and design of engineering systems, especially electronic systems - Bi(o) + (electr)onics.
