New hand with feelings - level 1

New hand with feelings - level 1

13-02-2014 15:00

A fireworks accident happens. A man loses his hand. He is from Denmark.

He cannot touch or feel things. It is like this for nine years. Now, he has an operation. He has a new hand. The hand is made by men.

The hand is very special. There are sensors inside it. When the man touches something, the hand knows! This information goes to the man’s brain, and the man can feel things again! It is amazing.

He can feel different types of things. He is very happy. He is the first man with a hand like this.

Difficult words: fireworks (things in the sky which people like to watch on the New Year’s Eve), operation (doctors worked on his body), sensor (when something happens, this small thing knows it), brain (organ in the head).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
