      yes, perhaps. there are scientist who are making artificial muscles using carbon nanotubes (thin nano-sized ropes of carbon that are 20,000 thinner than a hair on your head and are incredibly strong). these tubes move when you pass electricity through them.. like the way your muscles work (brain sends electrical signal). so we hope to build artificial muscles using nanotubes to help people who have lost a limb
