Haaretz Daily tells us to make way for the bionic man! In about 50 years we might all become robo-sapiens like the $6mill Man or the Bionic Woman or the Terminator. In the future, we may all be cyborgs implanted with artificial body parts and organs such as artificial hearts, livers, pancreas, eyes, kidneys, skin, hips, arms, legs, hearing, speech, etc. The various research methods include scanning brain activity for inducing motor control. DARPA is even dabbling in matrix type technology and all this technology may end life as we know it. Admittedly some of this technology is already here today!
