The major leap forward in the past decade with bionics has surprised me greatly.

Keep it up science. I want bionic HUD sunglasses.

Why not replace them with multitool/autoshotgun/flamethrower robotic hands?

>inb4 you can't hug your children with multitool/autoshotgun/flamethrower robotic hands
Can too

I would probably go with a regular hand because it is extremely versatile and most things are made to be used with a regular hand, like cars, doorknobs, and so on.

That said, the hand would be on a universal quick detach mount on the wrist area, to allow simple plopping on and off of specialized hands. I have little interest in heavy, cumbersome, gun-knife-multitool-dildo-cupholder-lamp-camera-waterbottle hands, and instead would rather snap into a mostly dedicated toolhand.

I wonder what guns would look like in this QD arm mount configuration, because regular ergonomic concerns are moot with a gear hardpoint.

And it's actually so fast paced, that we are probably even more advanced than we know. There's a lot of research and development coming out of smaller companies and labs and so many are in this sector and doing work on it that we don't know that the next big development might already be done.

It also happened at the perfect time. Lots of vets with missing limbs, the technology was starting to come online, and lots of funding. Now that serious progress is being made... dunno where the limit is.
