Xbox, CD Projekt Red, and the non-profit Limbitless Solutions have teamed up to create a real world prosthetic based on the bionic arm of Keanu Reeves’ Johnny Silverhand from Cyberpunk 2077.
As reported by Xbox Wire, these Johnny Silverhand-themed prosthetic arms will be donated for adults in upcoming clinical trial starting in 2021. A behind-the-scenes video is also available to show more of how this project came to be.
Limbitless Solutions is a non-profit organization that uses 3D printing to to create prosthetic arms for children and adults that are capable of gripping objects and performing carious gestures, and they are designed to be much cheaper than other prosthetics on the market.
This Cyberpunk 2077-inspired bionic arm is just one of the many pulled from pop culture. In 2015, Limbitless teamed up with Robert Downey Jr. to present a young superhero fan Alex Pring with an Iron Man prosthetic limb, and in 2018, it partnered with 343 Industries to offer Halo-themed prosthetics.
Another company, Open Bionics, recently teamed up with Komani to create a bionic arm based on Venom Snake’s arm from Metal Gear Solid V for a UK-based gamer named Daniel Melville who was born without a hand.
