DailyDirt: Melding Humans And Machines

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Here are just a few examples of some bionically enhanced people (and animals).

Joyce, you forgot something here:

“The Mercedes Formula One team gave a new bionic arm to a teenage fan, who was born without a left hand, after he offered to sell Mercedes advertising space on his prosthetic arm. The customized i-LIMB Pulse, created with the help of Touch Bionics, allows him to do things like grip a pen to draw pictures and write, tie his shoe laces, and catch a ball.”

Luke (of the Gospel according to Luke) was a doctor.

I Corinthians 3:13 : “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
