Evolvable artificial hand
This morning, I attended the session of evolvable hardware applications. One of the applications that most interested me was an evolvable artificial hand. It reads the nerve signals from one's arm and evolves the actions that one desires (like grabing, holding, etc). I think it's really cool and could be extremely useful for people who need prosthetic hands. There are also many other interesting projects going on in Higuchi's group. You can check them out here.
