In the past few months, we have covered plenty of advanced prosthetic arms and legs. This bionic fingertip is special though. Scientists have designed it to connect to the nerves in the arm, allowing an amputee to feel rough or smooth textures in real-time.
As the above video explains, the fingertip has a miniaturized sensor with electrical signals that are converted into spikes to stimulate the nerves of the subject. This technology has the potential to make life easier for a lot of people. You can find out more about it here.
