Amputee Has Prosthetic Hand Wired To Nerves

Soulskill posted about 6 months ago | from the thumbs-up dept.

Biotech 72

New submitter kalman5 writes "Dennis Aabo Sørensen is the first amputee in the world to feel sensory rich information — in real-time — with a prosthetic hand wired to nerves in his upper arm. Sørensen could grasp objects intuitively and identify what he was touching while blindfolded. The surgical team 'attached electrodes from a robotic hand to a 36-year-old volunteer's median and ulnar nerves. Those nerves carry sensations that correspond with the volunteer's index finger and thumb, and with his pinky finger and the edge of his hand, respectively. The volunteer controlled the prosthetic with small muscle movements detected by sEMG, a method that dates to the 1970s and measures electrical signals through the skin—unlike the electrodes attached to his nerves, sEMG is not invasive.' The results? 'The volunteer was able to complete the requested tasks with his prosthetic thumb and index finger 67 percent of the time the first day and 93 percent of the time by the seventh day of the experiment, Micera and colleagues report. He found the pinky finger harder to control: he was only able to accomplish the requested grip 83 percent of the time by the end of the experiment.'"

Yes, yes I have.

A crafty ploy, removing the long-flying nerd banner from the /. Classic site, only to herald the much maligned Beta site with our former Standard.

Beta, for the REAL nerds.

The only logical explanation is the Beta dev is sleeping with management.

P.S.: The Vader-like robotic hand is sweet!

The Beta motto is ``News for Nerds''.

I guess the definition of "nerd" changed, you can't use any HTML in that gawdoffal clusterfuck. They HAVE to have some underhanded reason to want to kill slashdot, because once they remove classic this place will be empty and the cleanmypc guy and the goatse guy and APK and ethanol-fueled will be all that's left.

So, if nerds don't code or do science or engineering or repurposing stuff, what are we called now? And is it a pejorative, like "nerd" was when I was in high school?

I'll miss slashdot.

I'll miss slashdot.

Yup, me too. It kinda felt like it was about to jump the shark even before Dice took over, but after that point the writing was on the wall in great big letters and it was clearly only a matter of time. Fonzie is lining up for the jump right now, and as soon as Classic is no longer available I'm so outta here.

I tried posting this comment on Beta, and I couldn't even preview it, much less post it, so I'm back on Classic; this interface is SO much better. But even before I found out that Beta SIMPLY DOESN'T WORK, I realized that there's no pressure there anyway, 'cause it sucks as hard as it blows. Tiny text box, no 'quote parent' button - they're obviously trying to manipulate us into posting shorter comments. Well, Dice, guess what? When Classic disappears, my comments will be VERY short. Zero words - is that short enough for ya?

So long Slashdot, and thanks for all the fish - except for the fucking shark. No thanks at all for that.

Yeah. Shows how out of touch the people in charge of the site have become. They don't understand what keeps people here. I imagine they don't care. I imagine it's about getting new people in and traffic numbers up. There's some project manager who is under pressure to get these numbers. Beta is their baby.

I like the Slashdot Beta. I'm pretty sure that they understand that the only way for the web site to thrive is to continually get new blood. Compared to other social web sites (And Yes, Slashdot is a social web site, just not as main-stream as Facebook), Slashdot doesn't just look Old, it looks Ancient. It's way past time for a change. Personally, I'm disappointed that they weren't working on a 3D VR interface. Maybe in the next update 15 years from now...

However, what it really shows is just how out of touch the old timers have become. It's time for you guys to buy a tablet (grin). Like it or not, we are entering the age of the touch-screen, mobile computing, completely GUIfied world. I for one welcome our GUI overlords...

You know what? I'll take the new beta site when they stop

double spacing

all the lines

of text

in a little column

on the left

to make room for a giant column that has one ad at the top and is otherwise empty all the way down the entire comment section. I mean fuck, if they want to be all web 9.2 or whatever the version we're supposed to be on, they should have their "promoted" comments on top in their little colored boxes with their ads and shit on the side (just like the old fogey screen) then give us a working nested comment section that doesn't max out at 2 comments on the screen. Case in point: I went to http://science-beta.slashdot.o... [slashdot.org] and control-f'd your name and found this very comment. On the old fogey screen, your comment (including the quote) takes 11 lines (including the paragraph break after "now..." On the beta with the same screen size, your post takes 29 lines, not counting the fact that line spacing is set to about 1.5 or so. The first line of your post is

Yeah. Shows how out of touch the people in

That's all that fits. For the lulz, I hit reply over there and the reply box has a huge amount of padding on the inside. The first line of this comment before it wraps is

You know what? I'll take the new

This doesn't look like the new web, it looks like a 150 year old newspaper from back when editors said "fuck everything we're doing SEVEN [wordpress.com] columns of newsprint!" and a tiny font and that was progress.

Also, give us back abbreviated view, so nesting works right even if there's a -1 comment in the chain without mycleanpc taking up 50 goddamn screens each. I also feel sorry for the people who aren't in the first 20 or so posters because nobody's going to sit there mashing "more" over and over.

huh? (2)

radish (98371) | about 6 months ago | (#46171271)

You must be seeing a different site than me. I'd say the comments take maybe 70% of my screen width. There's a pretty wide margin on each side which could certainly be reduced a little, and then a column on the right with the search box, poll, and a bunch more panels. There's certainly some wasted space, but nothing like you imply. And nothing is double line spaced.

FYI, Chrome/Win.

Note khellendros's post at the bottom of the second pic. Maybe double-spaced is an exaggeration, but your text is (for some inexplicitly bizarre reason) sans-serif and line-and-a-half or so spaced compared to his (for some inexplicably bizaarre reason) serif font, normally spaced.

Bonus points! (1)

Qzukk (229616) | about 5 months ago | (#46188935)

I pushed post and naturally my post disappeared from the screen. I waited a bit to see if it would come back (even on "classic" D2 it sometimes took a couple of seconds) but it never did. I had to come back to classic D2 to see that the post did, in fact, submit (so at least the posting part worked, even if there's absolutely no feedback to that effect). While I was here I scrolled through the rest of the comments on Classic to see if there's any particular reason why some of the comments fonts are different than before, and I'm not able to find one. In classic, khellendros's post is exactly the same font as yours.

Re:Eh... (1)

khellendros1984 (792761) | about 6 months ago | (#46169231)

I think they're using some external javascript libraries that my work blocks, and it looks pretty bad. The page layout improves if I completely disable page styles. Of course, all of the behavior of the page is broken anyhow, so it's not much of a benefit.

My phone seems to display everything OK, but even in landscape, the comment tree quickly becomes about 30 characters wide with a big grey strip off to the right when you get a couple of replies in. The spacing feels too wide overall (both height and width).

When it works, I wouldn't call the beta "horrible", but I'd say that it still needs some serious tweaking. If I can't view the site on my work machine though, that's basically going to automatically kick it out of the daily rotation for me.

I have an open mind (-1)

I'v been in that situation. It was a PC hardware enthusiasts site sold at the peak of .com bubble to an investment fund. Within one month new management started changing the message board, message board that was the heard of the side and brought traffic. After one month they deleted old forum and moved everything into phpBB. Two months after the buyout forum was empty. 2-3 months later original creator of the site launched new portal :D with slightly changed name, and SAME forum software :D. One month later that new site picked up all the old users. Site that was sold closed shop a year later, new one is still running strong. Creator bought a new flat/house with money to spare = everybody wins.

Confessions Of an Ex-SLASHDOT BETA user (3, Funny)

Anonymous Coward | about 6 months ago | (#46167453)

Day 1: It wouldn't stop, the redirecting. At first I thought it was malware. Had my first drink in a long time.

Day 2: Barely had the strength to carry on as the BETA REDIRECTIONS continue.. trying not to talk to hallucinations at the bar and in the bathroom which laugh at me about these redirections.

Day 3: Discovered the BETA redirections were random, and while at first they looked somewhat usable, when I looked at me and my monitor screen in the mirror, a horrible woman with flesh hanging off of her body looked back, trying to lead me into a dance as the word BETA appeared across her rancid breasts.

Day 4: These BETA corridors go on FOREVER! On the plus side, I've taken up disassembling vehicles to corner this BETA beast and sacrifice myself rather than lead others to discovering it. I ate some red snow.

Day 5: Finding it harder to concentrate. I've ate some more of the red snow. The taste is starting to grow on me.

Day 6: This typewriter is the only entertainment I have, apart from throwing things at the walls, trying to get some response from the BETA which is now taking over my mind.

Day 7: Hahahahahha! Would you believe it? I'M STILL BEING REDIRECTED TO SLASHDOT BETA PAGES! AHAHhahahaah! Type, type, ding, ding! Wooo!

Day 8: The hallucinations are actually real! Would you believe it? They have offered to help me if I agree to work for them. I'm thinking about patenting this delicious red snow, the taste is unreal!

Day 9: Having black out sessions where I cannot remember large passings of time. Found some makeup, thought I'd paint a joker smile on my face to amuse the people only I can see!

Day 10: Productive today, part of what I wrote for my new screenplay:

I cannot opt out of Slashdot BETA!

Anyway, I just simply came to say what a shame it is that the beta site conversations have completely taken over Slashdot. Although I fully support the beta site conversation take over, it has ruined a potentially interesting good conversation about this story. I have a very good friend who was paralyzed less than two years ago and I've worked with people with disabilities. Although I have no physical disabilities of my own, I am very much aware of how difficult this is and how important a breakthrough this is.

I don't like this KDE comparison, and especially KDE4. While KDE4 was incomplete, it was in fact a like-for-like replacement. The only thing I truely didn't like (and still isn't fixed) is no Quanta. KDevelop is just an ugly eclipse/netbeans clone...still... but I digress. The slashdot FUCKBETA, OTOH, is just a marketing dot-com-bubble style rubyesque garrish nightmare of douchebaggery that goes completely counter to the core values of those of us that have been here for 15+ years.

Personally, I think comparing it to anything lessens it, because it is truely epic level fuck you to their core users way beyond anything we've ever seen before.

Anonymous Coward | about 6 months ago | (#46167721)

Why is the feedback for the new beta by email? Previously when the last attempt was made to force everyone onto the new beta they at least provided a simple form for feedback. Now it is a plain email for feedback. Obviously nobody is going to read such emails and digest the feedback. They certainly wouldn't be able to easily collate the results and deduce that most people hate the beta, so I suppose that is why the feedback is effectively /dev/null. Perhaps they want to harvest the email addresses of site visitors who rarely bother to login?
