You learn something new everyday right? If not, you gotta get out more! Appearently, Phantom Limb Pain is a condition that effects people who have lost a limb and still experience a fair amount of pain originating from the missing limb. What this Kinect related projects aims to do is alleviate some of that pain by immersing the patient in a VR environment where the limb is present again. Must be some sort of Psychosomatic type of response from the brain which believes the limb is in tact. Very interesting concept to say the least.
