You don’t need to a mutant to become Wolverine. Well, you won’t become him per se, but you will be able to build something that’ll extend and retract your claws on command. For that, you’ll need the MyoWare, which is a wearable muscle-sensing platform that lets you control bots, video games, and prosthetics (claws and all.)
MyoWare works by monitoring muscle activity and generating voltage when the muscles are flexed. The harder the wearer flexes, the higher the output voltage produced.
MyoWare is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a pledge of $35 will get you one MyoWare sensor and a pack of 6 electrodes.
