    Solar Powered Prosthetics is incredible technology!
    Engineers have developed a new way of harnessing the sun’s rays to power “synthetic skin” that they hope can be used to create advanced prosthetic limbs capable of returning the sense of touch to amputees.

    The researchers from the University of Glasgow had previously created “electronic skin” for prosthetic hands made from graphene, a highly flexible form of graphite that is only a single atom but stronger than steel.

    The new skin is more sensitive and uses natural energy from the sun’s rays instead of batteries currently used by similar materials.
