In a new study, a monkey fed itself using a robotic arm electronically linked to its brain. The work was presented here Thursday at the annual meeting of the American Association of the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

The robotic arm is about the size of a child’s, with a fully functional shoulder and elbow, as well as a simple gripper that can hold a piece of fruit or vegetable.

"It moves much like your own arm would move," said Andrew Schwartz from the University of Pittsburgh.


this is amazing...

being able to move a robot part with your mind...

if monkeys can do it, we can too...

here is a pic...

enjoy!!!

maybe if a person lost an arm this would help that person...

the robot arm can be controlled by that person's mind and it would be like a regular arm...

thats just what i think...

I have to say thats well interesting...I think if this technology develops then alot of injured or disabled people will be able to reclaim back there lost abilities....

Couldnt this technology be used though to make cyborgs ?

File doesn't work.. Maybe you typed in the address wrong or something. On the other hand you could be just using a mac. But when did Mac start using the exe extension to open a file.
