Bionic nerves, we grow old but with no arthritis, huzzah!!!

Hugh Herr went to TED 2014! A first dance, on a next-generation bionic limb: Hugh Herr and Adrianne Haslet-Davis at TED2014. I have always been a fan of Hugh's work, not only because his work is dedicated to transform people's lives, but also how he creates a new future for us. Imagine, we grow old but with no arthritis, huzzah!!!!

We want to close the loop between the human and the bionic limb,” he says. “We’re doing experiments where we’re growing nerves … When this is fully developed, persons like myself will not only have synthetic limbs that move like flesh and bone, but that feel like flesh and bone.
