Said by the JHU Applied Physics Laboratory of the incredible video, above, recently uploaded to their YouTube account:
A Colorado man made history at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) this summer when he became the first bilateral shoulder-level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two of the Laboratory’s Modular Prosthetic Limbs. Most importantly, Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident 40 years ago, was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs, performing a variety of tasks during a short training period.
Amazing! The technology is obviously expensive, still being regulated, ran through the proper FCC channels and won’t be available for some time. Regardless, this is a huge step in the improvement of life quality for the disabled. With flying cars and now bionic limbs, the future is looking quite exciting concerning the world of tech in late 2014, early 2015.
