Jason Barnes says that music offers him the same release that drugs do to other people. When he lost his arm in a freak electrical accident, Barnes pretty much thought that his life was over, especially as a musician. He tried various prosthetic limbs, but they didn’t help much, then Gil Weinberg, a researcher from the Georgia Institute Technology stepped in. Today, thanks to his prosthetic limb, Barnes can play beats four times faster than a normal human being. In a way, being bionic sure has its charms. Watch his journey below through a video filmed by Freethink.
