For the first time scientists were able to restore real-time sensory feeling in an amputee wearing a robotic hand. Bionic hands my not be at the skull-crushing level where would like them to be, but being able to feel our victim may be a step in the right direction.
The lives of those with prosthetic limbs may have the chance to improve rapidly with the introduction of thought-controlled robotic arms. These prosthetics and their electrodes will connect directly to the bones and nerves of amputees.
