Here’s a use for a Keurig machine that we can all agree on. As reported by MotherboardVice’s tech blog–builder Evan Booth transforms a brand new out-of-the-box Keurig K350 2.0 into a functioning bionic hand. It gives a whole new meaning to “manual brewing.”

Condensed from the 200-hour total build time, the fast-motion video is only five minutes long and shows every step of the process (very quickly), including a demo at the end. And just how did he do it? According to Motherboard:

He had no engineering plan in mind, “just a general idea of how things should be constructed.” The only non-Keurig materials he used were adhesives and a 12v external power supply (a small adaptor). The tools he used were pretty common, too: a rotary, a heat gun, and common hand tools like screwdrivers.

It’s a pretty cool project, and even with all the leftover parts, it’s still not as wasteful as using a Keurig to make coffee.
