Deus Ex augmentations are real thanks to Open Bionics

While it was great to see eighteen minutes of Deus Ex Mankind Divided gameplay (opens in new tab) yesterday, one of the most interesting parts of the stream was where Eidos Montreal revealed a partnership with robotics company Open Bionics and peripheral manufacturers Razer. The three are working on bringing real and affordable augmentations to life. 

The video below is fascinating and shows off real bionic arms designed around Adam Jensen's augmentations. Not only are they incredible, you can actually use a 3D printer to create your own. Consider this your memo that it's officially the future. 

"Working with Deus Ex to re-imagine the future of bionic prosthetics has been a fantastic creative process. It is has been made even better by seeing people wear the bionic arms and get so much enjoyment out of it," says Open Bionics CEO Joel Gibbard. "This collaboration goes to show how bright the future of bionics is. We feel lucky to have been able to work with the design team at Deus Ex." See the arms in action below.
