DIY Bionic Arms

Fifty-one year old Chinese fisherman Sun Jifa lost both of his arms when a homemade bomb he was making for blast fishing detonated prematurely. He couldn't afford prosthetic limbs, so he decided to build his own. After eight years of planning and scrounging scrap materials, he has built his own bionic arms.

Sun spent eight years making prototypes before finally creating a pair of metal hands which can grip and hold thanks to a series of wires and pulleys inside the shell.

'I control them with movements from my elbows and I can work, love normally and feed myself just like anyone else,' explained the real life tin man.
