A 22-year-old man has been fitted with the artificial hand which is directly linked to his brain through human nerve tissue and tiny electronic sensors.

In this amazing video, watch as the young man feels objects for the first time since loosing his hand to cancer. Stats for Sensory Robotic Limbs Trending: Older & Mild
