DARPA’s Mind Controlled Prosthetic Arm Can Now Feel

DARPA has an awesome program underway to develop the next generation in prosthetics. These technologies will help soldiers and others who have lost a limb to get back to their lives with as much normality as possible. Back in July, the organization first showed off a prosthetic arm that is controlled by the brain of the wearer. DARPA has more recently announced a software update or that robotic limb that lets the user actually feel what the arm is touching.

Researchers on the project blindfolded a participant who was using the prosthetic arm with the updated software and then randomly touched one of the fingers. The person was able to tell which finger was touched.
