A recent issue of Popular Science describes some of the landmark progress with artificial limbs. Researchers in Italy have prototyped the first brain-controlled prosthetic hand (see photo below). The “Cyberhand” is intended to make patients feel as if they have their limb back —- that is, provide them with a fully functional hand that moves in perfect sync with the wearer’s thoughts. It’s not quite Luke Skywalker yet, but moving closer…
This could be dangerous if the wearer has a naughty dream!
wow, this is cool!
