The future is upon us! A man who has been paralyzed for eight years is finally able to use his hands and arms again after getting a brain implant that restores some of his motor function! The man was able to grab a cup and take a drink from it on his own for the first time and was even able to scratch his nose!
Doctors created an implant called BrainGate2 that goes into the brain and then connects to another part of the body so that the brain can then communicate with body part. Although this is a huge step, doctors say that there is still a long way to go before it is streamlined.
