    My thoughts exactly and I am not even tired :-)

    Only three things went through my mind, 2included something sexual related and the other was Idle Hands which oddly enough has a sex scene with Jessica Alba (its a body double bros and full frontal). Oh how sex and my virginity drives me.

    "Can anyone say battery life?" I agree, recharging the battery on that thing must suck.

    Other than that, I thought those things were EXTREMELY inaccurate at this point with reading impulses. It`s a shock the he can control it so well.

    Not really new.

    And cyborgs aren`t going to rise, it`s the computers. They`re get to better smarter then us, then get bored of us, then make us wage war against out own war machines.

    OMG That`s so unimpressive, my roommate has one since he was like 16 years old.
    If it was a hand where you could stretch and bend every finger one at a time controlled by the appropriate nerves in your arm, that would be impressive.

    I would kinda be freaked out having one. But I guess its better than not having an arm.

    On a completely different note, what the hell its "The Pickup Artist"? Why is it a TV show? Its American, isn`t it? Stupid ads.

    yeah. I heard about it a while ago, it stills looks good though. I wonder how much it`s going to cost though? I bet you can`t get it on the NHS. Would insurance companies cover it either?
    I have heard that they are remaking Bionic Woman into a TV show. Wonder what type of prosthetics she`ll get?

    Although, a bionic brain would seem to be impossible with that kind of technology since it requires a brain to operate D:
