It’s still no match for the human hand, but RSL Steeper‘s BeBionic 3 looks way cooler.

The company is launching a more powerful, durable version of its prosthetic today at a gathering of the American Orthotic Prosthetic Association (AOPA) in Boston.

The BeBionic 3 has an aluminum chassis, improved electronics, a redesigned thumb, and new motors that increase the power grip strength from 16.8 pounds to 31.5 pounds, according to SteeperUSA.

In hook mode, when a weight is carried by all fingers, the hand can bear 99 pounds, up from 70.5 pounds.

The hand works by detecting faint electrical signals in the user’s arm skin. These are amplified by the electronics and translated into one of 14 possible grips. Users can cycle through a choice of eight of these that are uploaded to the hand and select the one they want for a particular task.
