Description
A mind-controlled prosthetic arm was developed by Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab as part of their "Revolutionizing Prosthetics" program This robotic arm is controlled by neural activity from the brain so that it may replicate the motor functions that a normal arm could perform. This includes functions such as holding objects, as well as pressing buttons with your fingers.
