"The scientific advance here was not the hand itself, but the electronics and software that enabled it to give sensory feedback to the brain."

Comment on BBC have your say:

Amazing advancement, but it annoys me when "scientists" are credited with "creating" things like this. Scientists have allowed us to understand how the body works to a level that mind blowing things like this are possible. But it was Engineers who created it! Articles showing how amazing engineering is, don't even mention engineering, and we wonder why there aren't enough Engineers in the UK."

Well done Bram, you understood it!

Regards.
