From: Robotics Trends - 11/29/2012

 

The robotic device's electrodes are fused directly to the bones and nerves of amputees

 

A postdoctoral student has developed a technique for implanting thought-controlled robotic arms and their electrodes directly to the bones and nerves of amputees, a move which he is calling "the future of artificial limbs". The first volunteers will receive their new limbs early in 2013.
