Bionic Shoulder by victomon Bionic Shoulder by victomon
Here is my entry for the Repomen Contest.
It is a Bionic Shoulder:

Made of a poly-carbonite alloy. Which can withstand 1000 lbs. of pressure. Joints are highly flexible. Can easily connect to back or front of torso (depending on damaged area). Bionic Arm can easily attach to shoulder.

Im confused as to how this anatomically resembles a 'shoulder'. Now, I imagine the flat is the scapula? Besides being too small how do you maintain range of motion without the ball and socket joint? And what is that...lever beside it? And the diagonal pipe, is this the clavical? Really don't see how this can work as replacement, much less an enhancement that could actually lift anything.

Well to answer your question, the design of the shoulder was made like this to maximize mobility of the arm, it may look stiff but, what you are actually seeing is the Nickel plated Flexi-Coat over the entire piece. The Flexi-Coat has a similar feel to that of rubber coating that you would put over the handle of any day to day tool you may have laying around the garage. The reason for the coating is to prevent any mechanical fluids mixing with the human blood, which in turn could cause a hemoglobin infection (wouldn’t want that to happen could cause a fatality to the patient and then there are lawsuits, etc).

Another thing you don’t see are the synthetic Nano fibers that hold torn muscle and ligaments together (that’s a whole different feature, I’m illustrating the Bio-shoulder itself). And yes, that is the clavicle bar that you see. The View of the Bio Shoulder is from its back side. Again I assure you that there are flexible joints and Gyroscopic ball bearings, they are just hidden with Nickel plated Flexi-Coat. I hope I was able to answer your questions, and I appreciate the comments

Vic.

And don’t forget to stop by the Phoenix Comicon on Memorial Day weekend 20010.
