The Robotic Symbionts is an additional robotic hand designed to be an added functional limb that can be added when needed. The device operates from a wristband that attaches to the arm to add a manmade limb that can be used in a variety of ways. The gadget offers 11 different motors to replicate the natural movement of a hand that can be fully controlled by the wearer. This gives consumers an additional limb when needed.

The robotic arm is constructed using wires and moveable pieces so it can be operational in the same way a human limb would be. The synthetic hand uses the wrist as an anchor point, and can accept commands via Bluetooth. The wearable can be instructed to hold objects, pick things up or even draw.
