Les Baugh lost both of his arms in a freak accident about 40 years ago. Now scientists from Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory have fitted him with two robotic limbs, which can be controlled wirelessly using his own thoughts.
Incredible!!! A man named Les Baugh recently made history by becoming the "first bilateral shoulder-level amputee" to wear two Modular Prosthetic Limbs at the same time. And the whole thing went down at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory! Baugh had lost his arms over forty years ago, and had to have a procedure called "targeted muscle reinnervation" [...]
A Colorado man, a double amputee, has been able to use his mind and thoughts to control a pair of shoulder-level robotic prosthetic arms for the first time. Les Baugh, who was participating in the decades-long Revolutionizing Prosthetics Program, lost both arms in an electrical accident about four decade ago. Show More Summary
Leslie (“Les”) Baugh, a former electrician in Colorado, who lost both of his arms during an accident 40 years ago, was the first person ever to wear and operate a set of prosthetic limbs that operate bilaterally with his thoughts. The unique limbs were created by a team at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory […]

Here's one other DARPA-funded robotic limb controlled by thoughts alone -- actually make that two, because Colorado man Les Baugh had two bionic arms attached from shoulder level. Baugh got them this summer, 40 years after losing both arms, as part o...
Tom Brady is a three-time Super Bowl champion, millionaire, spouse of Gisele Bundchen and certain Hall of Fame quarterback. Still, Brady can be a very angry man, especially when he’s losing a football game on national television, leading him to let loose a stream of a certain four-letter obscenity. Show More Summary
