Many congrats to yaksha for scoring 100 points on Boiledbeans! He is the second bb user to hit this mega geek milestone.
He has sent in a guest question to commemorate this event and we will be posting it on bb tomorrow.

Nice work yaksha!

Now for today’s question: Identify and Connect


Cracked by: Dibyo , udupendra , duriel(almost lost the point ;) ) , shashank , Vinay and yaksha.

Answer:To quote udupendra:  Dean Kamen (of Segway fame created the) Luke Arm (which gets its name from) Luke Skywalker.

If you have seen Star Wars, you will know that Luke Skywalker looses his arm whilst fighting Darth Vader. He gets a robotic arm which is as good as his real arm. Thus the name.

    oh yeah, i guess i was a bit vague back there. This is the “Luke Skywalker Bionic Arm”, a prosthetic arm named after Luke Skywalker (who has a fancy fake arm), and it was made by Dean Kamen’s team.

    invented by Dean Kamen – the segway guy
