Les Baugh stretches his mind in preparation for his new bionic arms. Baugh lost both of his limbs in a tragic accident as a teenager. Today, he enacts a series of heart-wrenching scenarios to conduct the chores and routines of day-to-day life.  He admits he was pretty low once, but he has since found hope, especially in this exciting new opportunity to test an advanced prosthetic developed by the John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Using targeted muscle reinnervation, Baugh performs dexterous tasks with his bionic arms. Watching him learn is really fun. You can tel he enjoys it.The technology is super cool as well.
