Made from steel and brass, this unusual prosthetic arm articulates in a number of ways. The elbow joint can be moved by releasing a spring, whereas the top joint of the wrist allows a degree of rotation and an up-and-down motion. The fingers can also curl up and straighten out. The leather upper arm piece is used to fix the prosthesis to the remaining upper arm.

Taking a yoga class for the first time can be intimidating, and learning the correct form for yoga positions while breathing properly is harder than it sounds.

Fashion tech company Wearable Experiments hopes to take the guesswork out of doing the perfect downward facing dog with its Nadi smart fitness pants.

The pants release gentle haptic vibrations throughout the fabric to guide the wearer to the correct form and posture for yoga poses.
