Konami Is Giving One Lucky Guy A Real Phantom Limb Prosthetic Arm

Konami is hard at work on its intriguing Phantom Limb Project, and will be showcasing its creations at the upcoming inaugural BDYHAX bodyhacking and biohacking convention at the end of the month. One lucky man named James Young will be receiving his custom-made Phantom Limb prosthetic arm, just like we saw in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain.

The 25-year-old lost his own arm and leg when he fell on the tracks between two carriages of the London DLR. James still loves video games and travel, and was selected by prosthetic artist Sophie De Oliviera Barata to receive a limb made just for him -- just like the arm from one of the games he loves.

There's a special documentary coming alongside the unveiling and presentation of Young's prosthetic arm at BDYHAX, which Konami will be revealing at a later date. Personally I can't wait to see this prosthetic in action, especially since it's going to be a real attention-grabbing augmentation for this man's body. He's the real Diamond Dog here.
