Mind-Controlled Bionics: New Tech Translates Thoughts Into Motion
New technology in prosthetics is allowing for controlling appendage mechanisms with brain activity. While not an equivalent replacement of a lost limb, further development of the technology will bring us closer to tapping into the full potential of advanced prosthesis.
Thanks to developments in technology, it’s now possible for humans and animals to receive specially-crafted 3D-printed prosthetics. In the past, for example, an eagle received a 3D-printed beak after poachers shot it off and a
Paralyzed Man Can 'Feel' Again with Brain-Connected Prosthetic Hand
DARPA unveiled new technologies and research initiatives that may help people with paralysis, missing limbs or brain damage restore or regain near-natural function through prosthetics or electrode therapy.
