Amazing stuff. the application to humans are obvious and if it can be perfected we are one step closer to cybernetic bodies.

That is fascinating, imagine a whole suit controlled with just a brain, there would be direct link between brain and computer, no latency and plus power. Even, like it was said whole cybernetic body.

Link in relation to brain controlled robotic arm:

I don't agree with testing on animals!, but I am also aware that without that there would be no advancement.

I dont agree, why dont they use people? I would do it anytime, IŽd even pay for those experiences, I never understud why its so hard to volunteer for research, I am kinda angry at that and thats why I like artists like Stelarc and Orlan, who do all those surgeries and fight for the right to do more with our bodies than just working and reproducing.

That's right , why not test on humans.

After thinking about it, there is law and many people wouldn't agree on that experiments, there is also possibility of error, death in research, that would be fiasco.
When experiment is mature I'm certain that human subject is a must.

But again humans are self aware, like I said I don't agree with testing on animals, but there is no real substitution, at least not yet.

p.s. testing on humans,hmm , even testing that we aren't aware of ...

that's so fucked up......people think they can just fuck with animals just because they can't be understood......just because we're supposed to be superior......

well in this case, on the plus side, it seems the monkey is pretty healthy and unharmed

Not to sound callous (I couldn't handle someone doing something to my cat), but we eat animals. Hooking a computer to its brain seems tame by comparison.

Read "the wanting seed" by anthony burgess (writer of "a clockwork orange")


But yes, experimenting on animals is as bad as eating meat...meat is murder. Tasty tasty murder (hey, my ex girlfriend is a butcher...I have to like meat)

I was raised vegetarian, and that is my preference; but I don't shy away from eating red meat from time to time.

One thing that excites my imagination is advancements in our biotechnology; specifically,food applications (cross-posted in Techy news picks of the day):

Fish Fillets Grow in Tank

Scientists grow meat fit for vegetarians

Thanks for recommendation, "reading" material always impressed me more than anything else, must be my imagination, if anybody has any else recommendations on books, I would like to hear it!

People think meat grown in a tank is icky, but one day we'll have to eat it if it's nasty or not :P
I can't wait!

As long as it is healthy, tastes good, and is no more harmful than "real" meat, I'm all for it.
