Creepy Prosthetic Gives You a Tentacle Arm

Not just any prosthetic arm, this one gives you a tentacle arm, literally. That’s right, this “tentacle-shaped arm [is] be flexible and can grip materials of various shapes and sizes.” Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

The lack of a flat surface and other fingers means the tentacle has to be quite strong and sturdy for when the user needs to put his weight on it, like when climbing or pushing.
