The FDA has approved a prosthetic arm, invented by Dean Kamen, inventor of the Segway, that is thought controlled and capable of performing complex functions.    The DEKA Arm is nicknamed "Luke" after Luke Skywalker because he received a realistic human hand prosthetic after losing his real hand in a lightsaber fight with his dad, Darth Vader (sorry if that is a spoiler, but you should really get out more).

According to the US Fire Administration, every year barbecue grills cause approximately 6,500 fires. The peak month for grill fires - JULY.
 
The top ignition factor, accounting for 43% of grill fires, is mechanical failure or malfunction, such as part failure, leak, break or lack of maintenance. Other ignition factors include:

  • Misuse of material ignited - such as combustible material being too close to heat
  • Operating deficiency - primarily leaving the grill unattended
