About four years ago, a man called James had a freak accident while trying to board a train that resulted in him falling under the train, severing his left leg, and severely damaging his left arm among other grievous injuries.
Originally, James was sent home with what he called "peach-colored and obvious" prosthetic arm and leg with limited capabilities and a hook instead of a hand.
Eventually James became part of an experiment where he was fitted with a prototype bionic arm.
The limb in question is connected to the nerves and muscles in the shoulder and the bionic arm was fitted at the studio of a prosthetics artist called Sophie De Oliveria Brata, creator of something called the Alternative Limb Project.
Muscle signals are detected by sensors attached to the skin of his shoulders that are connected to a harness on the top of the body that operates the arm and hand.
The arm has a laser light, a flashlight, and a USB port in the wrist to change his phone.
