If you did not see The Colbert Report last night on Comedy Central, I highly recommend that you try to catch it when the show reruns this evening at 7:30 EDT. The episode is also available online at The Colbert Nation Web site, which you can access by clicking on the link.
Stephen's guest is Dean Kamen, CEO of Deka Research and Technology and the inventor of an advanced prosthetic arm. Kamen explains that the Department of Defense came to him and asked that his company invent the arm for soldiers who have suffered amputations.
The interview includes footage of an amputee using the arm and hand to eat, which Kamen said the gentleman learned to do within ten hours. Kamen also said that the man's wife told him that her husband was feeding himself for the first time in 19 years.
I found it quite moving and amazing.
