    What was once science fiction is now here. THIS is a game changer and the path that this takes us down is both exciting and a bit scary at the same time when one considers future applications.

    What I was just blown away with was when she said that she doesn't even have to think about picking up a cup, or shaking hands or feeding herself. She just did it, just like you or I would do, that is, without thinking about it, without thinking about moving her arm or fingers. And it virtually took no training. When the scientist behind this amazing breakthrough said that he sees in the very near future, how this same technology would be applied to sight as well, that just floored me. They've already figured out how to give the wearer a sense of touch. Simply.........amazing.

    I see brain powered avatars of ourselves doing all the work. Wireless rechargeable personal maid/assistant/slave laborer.

    Oh Man, the possibilities!

    Such a great time to be alive.

    Robots can't be trusted.
