Bionic / Cybernetic Replacements?
« on: February 23, 2012, 12:21:27 AM »
Would you consider replacing one of your body parts for one that is more advanced, in essense performing
an "upgrade?"

In the not so distant future, people might consider doing just that!

Such "replacements" or "Upgrades" will no doubt, cause stiring legal and ethical debates and court decisions
but like it or not, those days are close at hand, or foot, or eye...etc.

The video is definitely worth watching and personally, I find it way cool and sort of scary at the same time.
Our future...yeah...right! Better, stronger, faster....

In the world of AI, it's the thought that counts!

Engineers are great people! I think we have a lot of innovation. But at the same time. This is a little scary. This video is amazing. But what is reassuring is that certainly, research in this area is a great happiness for people, deprived of their arms legs etc.. :)

I wouldn't like to replace any parts of my body unless they are not working okay.  I would really enjoy trying out some kind of exoskeleton though.  8)
