The Robot-Arm Prosthetic Controlled by Thought

4703 ratings | 441074 views
Johnny Matheny is the first person to attach a mind-controlled prosthetic limb directly to his skeleton. After losing his arm to cancer in 2008, Johnny signed up for a number of experimental surgeries to prepare himself to use a DARPA-funded prosthetic prototype. The Modular Prosthetic Limb, developed by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory, allows Johnny to regain almost complete range of motion through the Bluetooth-controlled arm.

I always wondered what it would be like to have a prosthetic body part

Met this guy and shook hands with him, actually a really cool guy. I asked him what it was like when he got his Luke Skywalker arm, he corrected me and said it's more like an Anakin Skywalker's. He should be getting a new one installed with the sensation of touch soon. This world is quite an exciting place.

There’s no such thing as a painless lesson—they just don’t exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can’t gain anything without losing something first. Although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you’ll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah… a heart made Fullmetal.

This is amazing how he can use his thoughts to move the arm.

so now we can actually build a robot fully controlled by our thoughts to, maybe, be used for military purposes or medical purposes, like firemen for example. it is really wonderful how far technology has lead us

Most metal invested on gun technology could given all Veterans more access to return to a normal life than a normal person unemployed with a big credit card debt, maybe not only in the USA, but all over the world if the 20 century's globalization would realize that we have communication enough to avoid all wars.

Tiaam Du Nord (2 months ago)
Okay that’s very cool and all, but how convenient is that? Isn’t it heavy? Plus, the reaction time of the arm is kind of slow so I doubt that it would be extremely helpful in his everyday life. Plus, the training time to be compatible with the arm takes months!! Also I can’t imagine the price tag

I've been very interested in this since I first learned about Dr. Kevin Warwick in 2000. I seriously thank people like Johnny Matheny for helping us evolve and move forward in technology. For that, I salute you.

Anyone think it funny they use an Xbox controller on the computer. Also it only cost 120 million to develop this technology. That's like the cost of one big budget movie.

Not controlled by thought but his nerves connect to the arm and the electrical impulses control the arm, in a way yes by thought but in reality no
