Cybernetics - the link between man and machine

Science presenter Rani Price explores the incredible world of cybernetics. She meets a scientist who has an electronic chip inserted into the nerve in his arm to control a robotic hand, both locally and remotely. The robotic hand has pressure sensors that feedback touch signals to the operator via his nervous system.

Rani then meets a research student who has developed a clever cybernetic system which allows him to use sound to navigate around a room blindfolded.
