Gone are the days when
losing a limb or organ was permanent
With the advent of smaller microprocessors and
businesses beginning to see dollar signs, robotic
limbs and artificial organs are no longer confined
to science fiction.
Significant advancements in the fields of
biomimicry, artificial neurons, robotic muscles
and sugar-powered robotics have made such
things not only feasible, but profitable.
Microchips in artificial legs
can detect when weight is put
on it and adjust hydraulics to
accommodate that weight.
Implants for diabetics may
soon be able to determine if
they need insulin and
administer it automatically.
How far will it go?
“One possibility is to link humans with machines, to
create cyborgs, part human, part machine”
