Les Baugh of Colorado, who lost both his arms in an industrial accident more than 40 years ago, is able to control two prosthetic arms with his mind, and use them just like flesh-and-blood arms,  thanks to technology developed by the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.  This is just the beginning of a new kind of great medical advances.
