For the first time, people with arm amputations can experience sensations of touch in a mind-controlled arm prosthesis that they use in everyday life.

The advance is unique: the patients have used a mind-controlled prosthesis in their everyday life for up to seven years. For the last few years, they have also lived with a new function -- sensations of touch in the prosthetic hand. This is a new concept for artificial limbs, which are called neuromusculoskeletal prostheses -- as they are connected to the user's nerves, muscles, and skeleton.

Am I a 'roid or a 'borg?
