Mind-controlled bionic limbs

Les Baugh, who lost both arms in an electrical accident, made history at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) when he became the first bilateral shoulder-level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two of the Laboratory’s Modular Prosthetic Limbs. Les was able to operate the system by simply thinking about moving his limbs, performing a variety of tasks during a short training period.
