Nine years ago, Denmark-based Dennis Aabo Sørensen lost his left hand after a firework exploded during a New Year's Eve celebration.
But thanks to researchers, Sørensen has become the first amputee in the world to be able to feel again through a prosthetic hand, USA Today reports.
Researchers from Switzerland and Italy implanted electrodes into Sørensen's arm and connected a prosthetic hand to it. This ultimately resulted in a real-time sense of touch.
While blindfolded and wearing ear plugs, Sørensen could tell the difference between a Mandarin orange and baseball.
Unfortunately for Sørensen, it will be years before the sensory enhanced prosthetic will be publicly available. Today, Sørensen is using a battery operated prosthetic hand.
