Cyborg tech on the way?

We can actually override neural impulses with technology now. We may actually be able to achieve cyborg tech sometime in the middle future with this sort of advancement. It's pretty neat either way though, cyborg tech or no. The guy will be able to move his arm again, which is really nice. :)

So thoughts, feelings, blah blah blah?

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~

If true that's great, the idea of reconstructing pathways and musculature through technology is great. I just hope it's not just smoke and mirrors. I have friends that would really benefit from this kind of advancement.

Yeah, if this can be demonstrated to work effectively, it's really awesome. And, from that article, it certainly looks like it works, and I can't see anything that looks likely to go wrong with it.

As for cyborg stuff, well, in principle it is a step towards that possibility, and I can't see any reason why the same technology couldn't be used to control an artificial limb, but I suspect there are quite a few other problems that will arise before that becomes a reality.

Soon enough, we'll be able to transplant our brains or even just consciousness into machines.

Sounds like transhuman immortality, alright. But I'm impartial to it.

We have the technology, we can make him stronger, faster, harder, better.
Soon, my dream of world dominion by creating an army of Franco cyborg clones will be a reality!
Damn, this technology is fucking sweet.
