He's even mastered a more sensitive maneuver — hugging his grandchildren. (Watch Sullivan's bionic arm in action — :41)
The motions are coordinated and smooth because his left arm is a bionic device controlled by his brain. He thinks, "Close hand," and electrical signals sent through surgically re-routed nerves make it happen.
Doctors describe Sullivan as the first amputee with a thought-controlled artificial arm."
