Musician Hacks Prosthetic Arm To Control Synthesizer With His Thoughts


“Bertolt Meyer, 42, was born without a lower left arm.
He has worn a prosthetic arm since he was 3 months old, but now wears a high-tech “i-limb” that looks like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie.

The i-limb is a myoelectric prosthesis, which uses electrical signals from the muscles inside the residual limb to control the prosthesis.

As a musician, Meyer had the idea to swap out the prosthetic hand for a DIY controller for his modular synthesizers so he can play music just by thinking about it.”
