Bionic limbs

Posted on by | No Comments Yet

For some the merger of human and machine is in the relms of science fiction and often conjures up images of cyborgs or brain-washed soldiers.  However, for others using artificial limbs is a reality.  The bbc has a new section devoted to this (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-17153052) with some excellent footage of not only what the future holds, but what is happening now.  See a day in the life of a teenager at school with bionic limbs:

If you had a serious accident to one of your limbs, would you elect to have it amputated in order to have a bionic replacement?
