Prosthetic arms are nothing new. In fact, they have become much more advanced over the years. This prosthetic arm is quite special though. Given to a man in Sweden, this system is a mind-controlled prosthetic arm that interfaces with muscles, bone, and nerves to provide a more stable experience. The man can control the arm using his mind just like a true cyborg.

This can be a lifesaver for many folks. Since the surgery, this man has been able to do physically demanding jobs using his prosthetic arm. The next step for researchers is to develop feeling for these devices. Scientist at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, are behind this project.
