Jason Little lost his hand in a car accident, which he thought meant the end of being able to sense touch in that part of his body forever. Years later, he's now the first user of a new wireless interface that connects to his prosthetic arm and allows him to actually feel things in his phantom limb. His brain is able to interpret new signals in a way they once did.
