Incredible moment paralysed man uses ‘psychic’ robotic arms to drink beer independently for first time in 12 years

A paralysed man has managed to pick up, hold, drink and put down a beer for the first time in twelve years . This is the heart-warming moment a paralysed man was able to use a pair of arms for the first time in more than a decade.

Erik G. Sorto, 32, was paralysed from the neck down after suffering a gunshot wound 12 years ago.But now, with the help of sci-fi-esque technology, he can use his mind to control robot arms that he can use to grab, hold and carry items – or even drink a beer

.Erik, rightfully, dubbed the experiment “awesome” following a successful trial with neuroscientists from the California Institute of Technology, in Pasadena.

“I was surprised at how easy it was,” Erik said in a statement.

He added: “I remember just having this out-of-body experience, and I wanted to just run around and high-five everybody.”
