    Next thing we know they'd "upgrade the naked silly monkies by getting rid of them."

    Allot of stuff is also being developed for the limbless and the paralyzed





    and they are now incorporating touch feedback directly into your nervous system allowing you to "feel" using the sensors on the robotic limb, could be applied to armour etc. :)

    V cool stuff.

    Great article!
    'Where does he get those wonderful toys?'

    See we'd all like a robot suit with repulsors, but i'll be really impressed when my focus can turn into a giant robot and smash through the Friday morning jams and get me to work on time....

    I know it wasn't PC related, but I absolutely loved this article!

    Although as rickysio & maximus09 already mentioned, I couldn't help but notice the all film references jump out as well:

    - Cyberdyne, (from the Terminator films).
    - HAL, (from 2001: A Space Odyssey).
    - DARPA, (not an exact match, but sounds suspiciously like Dharma from Lost).
    - HULC, (The Hulk, obviously).

    OK, Dharma may actually have been based on DARPA and not the other way around, but there's no way the other three are accidents.

    I think it just goes to show that whether it be a hobby/work in personal computers, or a job in advanced engineering or military research, a geek is still a geek and we still love our Sci-fi... :D
