Japanese start-up revolutionizing electronic prosthetic arms

Tokyo-based start-up exiii has developed affordable yet cool electronic prosthetic arms.

TOKYO -- Last year, three young Japanese engineers quit their cushy jobs at major Japanese consumer electronics makers and formed a start-up with a big vision: to bring about a revolution by producing affordable, stylish and highly functional electronic prosthetic arms.

     These engineer-turned-entrepreneurs are aiming to create futuristic-looking, cool electronic arms that they hope wearers can use as a form of self-expression, just as they would with sneakers or eyewear.
