Peter Lee had his arm amputated because of cancer three years ago.
This week, he got a new, top-of-the-line prosthetic arm.
During his final fitting, he talks to Rio Bennin, who also has a prosthetic arm — but Rio’s is an older model, not as nearly as fancy as Peter’s. (3 1/2 minutes)

… an I-Limb Ultra. A top of the line prosthetic, it uses sensors on his biceps and triceps to tell the new artificial hand how to move. It’s really, actually, very cool.
