Double-Amputee Gets Two Amazing Robot Arms [Video]


Les Baugh lost both of his arms 40 years ago in an electrical accident, but now he’s on his way to becoming a badass cyborg. Thanks to the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory he got two robotic arms that are attached directly to his nerves, so he can move them naturally with his mind.

The system requires periodic breaks between moves, but it’s an incredible start for this type of technology and holds such promise for those who are currently using less responsive prosthetics.

See the video after the break.
