Tech News Bit: A Bionic Hand With Feeling

handLosing a limb is no doubt a life-altering event, but a new development in prosthetic technology that simulates the sense of touch could help make everyday tasks such as shaking hands and picking fruit at the grocery store possible.

This new breakthrough works by implanting electrodes in the nerve endings that communicate in real-time with the sensors of the prosthetic through a nearby computer. This communication enables the user to identify shape and density of objects.

At this point, the technology does not seem feasible for every day use, but it could be just around the corner.
