The tumultuous acceleration in scientific development in all fields of research allows to envision a ‘post-human’ society in which the freedom to integrate the body with technological improvements is fully realized, not only just with medical purposes. A short overview on the state of the art about prosthetic robotic hands for rehabilitation after amputations allows to understand the great progress made in recent years, but also the substantial current limitations to the fulfillment of a true fusion between man and machine, and faces us with the need to establish a shared vocabulary of terms with human sciences, to facilitate discussion on the social and economic consequences of the current technological revolution.
