Deus Ex: Human Revolution happened in 2027. Last year’s hit stealth/action hybrid featured Adam Jensen, a lead character who sported cool, lethal cybernetics in his rebuilt body. Nigel Ackland isn’t a shooting/sneaking action hero, but he’s a huge step closer to the augmented humans in Deus Ex‘s future.


The bebionic B3 prosthetic that Ackland is outfitted with receives signals from muscle twitches in his upper arm. These inputs can perform a range of motions that let him do things like hold a mouse, shake hands and write his name.

While it’s great that it lets Ackland to all kinds of normal activities that he couldn’t do before, he’s not exactly superhuman. But hey: it also has a trigger pull motion. All he needs is some upgrades and a trenchcoat to be a dystopian cyberpunk hero.


Or he could drink more robo-beers.
