I'm missing my left forearm since I'm born and this is really interesting. But I probably wouldn't use your controller because I can control the left stick with my elbow and controlling it with my knee would cost me a lot of precision.

The only buttons I have problems with are l1 and l2.

Often the game developers make really bad controls without options (I'm looking at you Ubisoft) or they fuck the one I can use. Activision I can only use Charlie in black ops3 and it's the worst controls ever.

Btw if you live in Southwest Germany I would have something you would really like.

I’m not sure how exactly the flag fits into that whole deal, though.

Hows it handle compared to your other hand? Is ghost limb / phantom hand syndrome real? Does having a prosthetic on help with that feeling at all? Is it strong? Does it hurt you beyond the normal pain of being an amputee when you lift/push/pull?

If you had both arms at birth, what's the biggest thing you never realized / expected / foresaw about losing an arm that you had to adapt to?

Answer any and all of these at your discretion, thanks in advance for your time. I am very curious. My dad is losing his leg to bone marrow cancer soon. Trying to wrap my head around it so i can help him adjust.

That is the most badass Batman techno-arm I have ever seen.

Edit: can't spell.

I don't have phantom pain, because I was born with one arm. I know someone who lost his legs and he said sometimes it's like you leg gets sawed of and sometimes it's like someone tickels you.

My prostetic isn't that strong, because every finger has its own time motor instead of one big for all. I have a second prostetic that can only open and close, but it can crack walnuts.

Your father shouldn't stop doing things he did before. Just try it until it works. I'm pretty good at origami now.

Thanks! Origami must have pissed you right off a dozen times. I was born with both hands and I can't do it without needing to take a deep breath. Idk how you do it with a prosthetic that is truly patient and talented of you.

The prostetic is more in my way I do origami without it because I don't have any feelings in it

I think it's just air pressure creating heat from having a mach 7 projectile slammed through it. Either compression ahead of the round or cavitation (?) behind it?

The explosions on each steel plate is the steel being decimated by the round. The intense and sudden friction of the round heats the steel and throws it around.

But I'm no railgunologist

It actually uses a small explosive to get it moving. Without it the projectile would just melt to the rails.

I'm sorry but I don't have a 3d printer. I really want one but I don't have the money.

Finally I have a relevant username. I'm indeed interested in Teslas.

I'm missing my left forearm and that's the technology my prostetic uses. It's just a bit more expensive (30000€ payed by Germany healthcare). If I have the money for the emgs and an airsoft I'm going to to attach a gun to my arm.

An die Möglichkeit hatte ich gar nicht gedacht.

You have to stop giving subs set to private so much April fools love. I'm just like r/sneksnek but I'm not interested in codes, base64, rot13 what have you. Being set to a private sub lets me hide my identity, you don't know if I'm associated with reddit admins. All of them are fake subs and false prophets. Remember that the button, robin, and place had very user friendly interaction where anyone can join in without having knowledge to deciphering code.

No I can not.

Reprogram what? All I see is a hunk of plastic, a connector and a transistor. What's on the other side of the board?

Here is a picture of the back. How does the sensor itself work it only has two connections so I asume it's analg. How can I use it with my Arduino Uno

That's a "chip on board", so it's VERY unlikely you're going to be able to reprogram it. They're typically custom made ic, manufactured for a very specific task, intended for high volume products. You're probably not going to find datasheets on this.

The TX+, TX-, RX+ and RX- are a little weird (maybe a differential serial output?). That's not a traditional UART configuration. My best advice would be to apply power to the board and see what comes out. Start at a low voltage.

What about the sensor itself is it some sort of photo resistor?
