Woman fully controls a robotic arm with her mind. WELCOME… TO THE FUTURE

Biologically accurate robot legs walk, kick ass just like a human

The machine comprises simplified versions of the human neural, musculoskeletal and sensory feedback systems. The goal of recreating the human walking gait with this unprecedented level of accuracy is for the scientists to better understand the processes that take place when we walk, and to provide a more definite answer to the question of how humans learn to walk in the first place. Then, it is hoped, this understanding can be translated into devising better ways to help spinal-cord-injury patients recover their ability to walk.
