Robotica

Absolutely astonishing. The truly incredible story of a present day bionic man.

The remarkable and moving story of Les Baugh.  Robotica.

Les Baugh lost his arms as a teenager in an electrical accident and, with help from engineers at Johns Hopkins and their Revolutionizing Prosthetics program, has become the first bilateral shoulder level amputee to wear and simultaneously control two Modular Prosthetic Limbs.

Essentially, it is a robotic prosthetic that Les can control with his mind as if it were a real limb.  Wow!

It’s really amazing to see him, if he had a chance to use these more often he would be unstoppable.

The video is a little longer than I usually post, but it is totally worth watching the whole thing.  Enjoy.
