BBC Three has produced a documentary called Bodyhack: Metal Gear Man that focuses on Briton James Young, who was outfitted with a prosthetic arm inspired by the Metal Gear Solid games. The documentary highlights Young’s journey and the work of the team that developed the amazing technology behind his bionic arm.

Equally amazing is the revelation that the prosthetic arm was paid for by Konami themselves. How surprisingly (and arguably uncharacteristically) kind of them.

Check out the documentary in two parts, totaling about half an hour, below.
