Incredible!!!

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!
