Man Blows Off Hands - Makes Another Pair



The man, who resides in China's Jilin province, lost both of his hands when a home-made bomb used in order to catch fish exploded prematurely. Lacking the funds to afford prosthetic hands, he spent eight years (presumably with a helper) constructing his won.

One cannot help but be impressed by his ingenuity - via elbow movement he's able to move the hands' fingers and thumbs enough to grasp various tools and function on his own. Considering they look rather like something from Renaissance Europe, it's understandable why he's known locally as 'China's Steel Alchemist'.

He admits some short-comings with his work, such as the inability to lift heavy objects and their tendency to become cold during winter months.
