The idea is to create more realistic prosthetics by using fiber optics to connect nerves to the artificial limbs.
Fiber optics will be used to send data to the brain. They are proved to be more efficient than contemporary electrodes:
1. Glass or polymer fiber optics are more flexible than the electrical designs in use now;
2. They are able to transmit more signals at once.
