New robotic hand ‘can feel’

A team of scientists from Italy and Sweden has developed what is believed to be the first artificial hand that has feeling. It has been attached to the arm of a 22-year-old man who lost his own hand through cancer. Researchers say it works by connecting human nerve endings with tiny electronic sensors.

    @NoiteraD I don’t think it is possible yet without batteries. Our muscles are highly advanced and got very energy efficient with evolution. Motors can’t output the same force with this kind of energy.
    But someone correct me if I’m wrong 🙂
    @Video: It makes me feel really happy to see that it is possible with modern technology to give these people some degree of a ‘normal’ life back. Someday they will look just like normal limbs.

    25 years after the first Terminator movie, we can see now robotic hands that look quite similar. That’s indeed an exciting age.

    @spider853 Well, i don’t think the small motors in the fingers would last for long if you put higher voltage on them, and the battery youre using would be empty too.
    What i wonder about is, could you somehow get electricity from the energy you’d normally use to move the muscles, so you dont have to carry batteries?

    @joejoe8151 no, because you will turn it off, and I don’t think it has a big signal.. just a small impulse
