Which is exactly what this Formula 1 racing fan received and with his new hand, Matthew James can do more things with it than he ever has with his older prosthetic hand.

DIY Heart Pulsing Pendant!

Is my heart still beating?  Build yourself a DIY heart pulsing pendant that shows you exactly when your heart beats via its LED lights.

I think they can make this even more advanced if it can display the actual heart beats per minute.  That might be a helluva heart attack-sensing device.
