Engineers across the world are searching for the next big thing after automation. Though artificial intelligence (AI) has answered the call, some concerned by the other face of it has called for more conservative approach. The key to achieving that would be to equip the robots with thinking ability but with limited autonomy. One way of doing that would be to combine human skill set and robotic precision. To demonstrate this, we have come up with a motion controlled bionic arm.
