Brain implants let paralyzed man move robotic arm

Erik Sorto is a man who had been shot years ago and as a consequence of that he was paralyzed from the neck down. Finally he can control his movements with a robotic arm thanks to two silicon chips implanted in his brain. These implants read his intentions and channel them through wires to reach the robotic arm.
These implants will be improved and provided for people who have lost their limbs due to disease or injury, so that they can still live a normal life.
