Man With An Advanced Thought-Controlled Robotic Arm Learns How To Play The Piano

Johnny Matheny lost a significant portion of his left arm to cancer in 2008, but through a Johns Hopkins University program, Matheny was given an advanced robotic arm that he can control with his mind through the aid of wireless arm sensors.

Since that time Matheny has taken quite well to the prothetic arm, despite a few technical difficulties and long distance software updates. Matheny has even begun learning how to play the piano using both hands.
