The still in that movie clip bears a close resemblance to the hand in the Cyberdyne lab in T2. Spooky!

3 million sounds dirt cheap for something so frickin' amazing!

I wonder if they'll be able to tap into nerve endings that aren't severed, so we can go willy-nilly adding extra limbs. Four arms doesn't sound too bad! :D

More refined grips in upcoming models? To what use?

To steal a quote from the article, "It felt almost the same as a real hand. They stimulated me a lot"

It's very likely that they could, however, you can only control parts of you're body your brain is familiar with. This guy will be imagining he's moving his hand which no longer exists.
I can't see us being able to move extra limbs independently.

If you start young enough, while the mind is still forming synapses you could conceivably engineer multiple limbs or even other forms of sensory abilities... as long as your brain is still under construction, it's pretty darn adaptable.
