"In 2006, Christian Kandlbauerwas electrocuted by 20,000 volts. The accident resulted in Kandlebauer losing both of his arms. However, today, Christian can dress himself, drive, and do a multitude of other things that otherwise wouldn't be possible without his special combination of regular and mind-controlled robotic prosthesis. Christian's situation is unique in that, while his right arm is a regular prosthetic limb, his left is a robotic arm which he controls with his mind."

Pretty cool, this guy is actually able to control the arm with his thoughts! Biomedical technology certainly is getting extra-cool nowadays

You would think one day a similar thing could be done for those who cannot walk, basically the same principle, but probably alot more complex.

At least it shows what people like us have been saying for years.

Roll on webcams for the blind, eh
