A man named Les Baugh recently made history by becoming the "first bilateral shoulder-level amputee" to wear two Modular Prosthetic Limbs at the same time.
And the whole thing went down at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory!
Baugh had lost his arms over forty years ago, and had to have a procedure called "targeted muscle reinnervation" which "reassigned the nerves that once controlled his arms and hands."
But that wasn't all that Les Baugh had to do to get to try these robot arms on!

Everyone knows about the feuding divas on American Idol this upcoming season.
But the person that really runs the show?
That may be Ryan Seacrest.
Or at least that's what the show's executive producer Nigel Lythgoe thinks.
Here's what he said:
"Ryan Seacrest drives the entire program. He's not on an earpiece or anything. He's not beholden to anybody. He controls the show. He's really important. It would be very, very difficult to replace Ryan Seacrest."
Nigel kind of got a hold of himself before saying anything he may regret. That's a lot of power to give to one guy - even if it is a classy and charming guy like Ryan.
