    On the cusp of some big things in this area. Get "moving arms" down and then you can progress to sending sensations to the brain to feel touch.

    Really, fancy. Do you honestly think that the male (and some female) membership of IAB is gullible enough to watch some two-star video just in the hopes of glimpsing a hot chick*?..........oh!








    * PS: I checked just to save you guys the trouble.....she`s really not hot at all. Unless you consider a tubby bird with a tattoo of Edvard Munch`s The Scream all down her left arm "hot". :\

    He should`ve prayed more. Maybe god would give him a new arm.

    Praying to make your life easier is not how you pray. Book of Job explains it really well.

    @Colors So you are not allowed to pray for the health and safety of yourself and your closest?

    Count on Fancy to take something so amazing and beautiful and make it about the chick that barely has anything to do with it.

    @ macguffin - yes, most men would view a 1 star vid to see a hot number.

    @ everyone else... STOP PICKING ON MACGUFFIN {that`s my job!}

    This seems novel, but I reckon fixing the damaged nervous sytem of the parapalegic would be more viable than designing and building an humam/robotic interface that is anywhere near as functional as an actual body.

    "She`s hot because she stayed with him through all this... "



    Yeah. I hate to point out the obvious, but there`s no indication in the article that they met prior to his disability. And indeed, when I checked they met AFTERWARDS:

    "The two met after his accident, so he`d never before reached out to her."

    There`s a photo of her in that article. Go on, fellahs, tell me I`m wrong about her not being at all hot. I`m not trying to be nasty, just questioning fancy`s taste in women.

    Although I did get one detail wrong: that`s her RIGHT arm that her yucky tattoo is defacing!

    It depends if you believe that God already has a plan for you or if you believe in free will.

    So if they met after his unfortunate accident and have a kid there`s actually two things that work.

    @Colors - What about both? If you wrote the program, give it all the free will you want, you still know what it`ll do under any circumstance. Particularly if you`re all-knowing.

    Then God has a plan all in his own for every situation, and just because we don`t understand it at the time it`s easy for us to disagree with it.
