Scientists at Italy’s University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome recently announced an advance in thought-controlled biometric devices.  A biometric hand was surgically attached to the patient’s nervous system via implanted electrodes. After the surgery in November 2008, it took the patient just days to start using the hand.  During the one month trial, the patient was able to experience sensations when making the most complex movements ever documented by a biometric limb.  Now, the challenge is to connect limbs for years, not months.
