Terminator Arm Dad

Nigel Ackland, 53, a father who lost an arm in a work accident, had this bionic 'Terminator arm' fitted. He uses the new limb by sending signals from his brain and controling it with his upper arm.
This remarkable video composes us speculate — is there some sort of psychosomatic assessment before someone is given a robot-Terminator arm, or do doctors just cross their fingers and hope for the best? It seems like that could go really wrong. luckily, Nigel Ackland, 53, is using his  bionic arm for cracking eggs and torrential beers, rather than throttling somebody until their heart beats no more. Ackland lost part of his arm in an accident, and now for the first time in six years he can dress
himself, peel vegetables and shake hands with any person brave enough to stick their hand into a robot hand, gratitude to sensors in the arm that are attached to two muscles. Good job, science. Source: SpotINFO
