Robotic creative agency Open Bionics recently partnered with the engineers behind the cyberpunk game Deux Ex to recreate elements of the game and its characters into a real life gaming accessory. The controllers are synthetic bionic arms inspired by Adam Jensen and Deux Ex that replicates the geometric aesthetic as well as the mobility of the version featured in the game.

The prosthetic hand is a realization of a version the character Adam Jensen adorns in the Deux Ex universe with flexible fingers and a fully rotational wrist that is comprised of gun metal grey pieces with modular shapes. Together the pieces form a robotic arm that renders the wearer superhero capabilities in the game. The bionic hand acts as an accessory to the game that allows players to further immerse themselves with functional robotic elements.
