Robotic arm turns man into a cyborg drummer


When Jason Barnes was electrocuted two years ago, he lost the lower half of his right arm, seemingly ending his dreams of being a drummer — but thanks to a new prosthetic hes able to finally achieve that goal. Barnes initially built his own makeshift device so that he could still drum, but eventually partnered with Georgia Institute of Technology professor Gil Weinberg to build a robotic version. The drummer essentially becomes a cyborg. The device utilizes a process called electromyography, where its able to follow Barnes direction through electrical signals produced by his upper arm muscles.
