Watch this guy make a bionic hand out of a coffee machine

It’s not particularly easy to fix a coffee machine, let alone to make a bionic hand out of it.

But that didn’t stop Evan Booth from doing it anyway. The video makes it look like an easy affair, but it took him 199 hours, 56 minutes and 36 seconds to create the machine.

The only supplies used in the final product were adhesives and a 12v external power supply. Besides that, all of the tools he used were nothing special: a rotary, a heat gun and screwdrivers.

Hedberg, as the bionic hand is called, ended up looking like something pulled from the set of a Terminator movie. However, it’s fully functional and able to pick up small items as demonstrated in the video. Very impressive.
