Lanie, Alex, and Eric Jones


Eric Jones was one of the first 10 people in the United States to be fitted with a bionic hand.

His children, Lanie and Alex, interview their father about how he got his bionic hand, people’s reaction to it, and some of the things he misses most about not having his original hand.

Originally aired July 9, 2010, on NPR’s Morning Edition.
