Robotic Arms Allow Partially Paralyzed Man To Feed Himself Cake For First Time In 30 Years
For the first time in around 30 years, a partially paralyzed man has once again been able to feed himself thanks to some robotic arms and his own mind. Harnessing the man’s brain signals to control two prosthetic arms, the technology made the once impossible task of cutting and eating cake look like a piece of, well, cake.
The extraordinary feat is described in a new paper published in the journal Frontiers in Neurorobotics and relies on a brain-machine interface to directly connect brain and computer.
