I have been busy a little while with responsibilites over here. First, one more page in the book of Technology Will Save Us All. Researchers at Duke University have created a robotic arm that can be controlled by a monkey's neural impulses. This could lead to replacement limbs that are controlled directly by the brain (much like your current limbs) or even a system to bypass damaged sections of the spinal cord and restore movement to paraplegics. Even more exciting, people may one day be able to implant their brains into robot bodies and shuffle off these mortal coils once and for all.
