`Bionic' arm brings back sense of touch

The article below talks of a 'bionic' arm. I posted this because of some specific comments on how the person 'feels' via the bionic arm. It's not that the arm transmits back up the nerve to the brian, but that it uses moters to put pressure on the man's chest, which the brain then associates as feelings in the hand. This might seem odd, but it's not. This is another post to read 'http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0805074562/qid=1119558277/sr=8-1/ref=pd_csp_1/103-5754009-3382252?v=glance&s=books&n=507846' by Jeff Hawkins and Sandra Blakeslee
