Thought I would share this little tidbit with the community, this is done by the same guy that created the Segway. Wonder how much it cost.

Next thing you know they'll be making military versions with attached rocket launcher and flame thrower. Laughing

That clip was totally fuking impressive.
Mix that with the people this week who showed a monkey using a robotic arm to get food by using electrodes implanted into the brain and you have a sure fire winner for all amputees the world over. Only trouble is is the cost effectiveness of such technology. Its a shame that quality of life will be guaged by money.

give technology another 20 years or so and i will ****ing exchange my left arm for one...computer interface, scanner, more utility than a swiss knife...

why are they trying to mimick biological arms. i mean getting a bionic replacement i'd like it to be better than a normal one. stronger, faster, possibly more joints and stuff like blades and cutting lasers included. maybe interfaces for technology like infrared, wlan, an usb port somewhere Laughing

I've actually thought about making a mechanical arm to wear as a backpack, but I can't afford the hydraulics for it, and even wen I do the controls will be a good deal...simpler.

So when are they going to make bionic everything else?

I want to switch out everything but my brain....And make it rpg proof please.

i want one of these.... no i want four. The create some back harness so i can have 6 working arms....

Haaa, women are better multitaskers.... NOT ANYMORE!!
Enter the 6 arm bionic man!

I'm not sure everyone will agree that that would be no better than square one... Very Happy

mind that the invention of the technology requires a lot of effort. But mass production costs are minimal.

What happened to LCD TVs? Cell Phones? RAM memory modules?

in a truly developed state a production is based on the cost of the materials... and to my mind this mechanical ARM requires 5 kg of various metals, 2 kg of plastics, and a little electronics.

60 Years ago a personal portable radio was unthinkable... costs were too high. Now we have have compact flash players for less than 40 dollars. And they are dropping further.

There were times when automobiles were unaffordable... now everyone can get one. Asian manufacturers only bear the material and labour costs after they have reproduced the technological process.

Within the next 100 years we should be able to build autonomous cyborgs - ones who imitate human, industrial robots we can build already.

And seriously, there is no more efficient technology than living creatures themselves - why do we need to imitate life, when human body is much more efficient - all you need is a new instance of a human body - a genetical clone - your baby.

Actually robots can be stronger, faster, and smarter then humans...Though they might lack the lifespan I believe its highly possible to make a machine run at 15+mph lift a ton and think half as fast as a human(whilst having an amazing amount of memory space).

The only thing machines wont beat is the processing capability of the human brain.

human is more efficient at fuel consumption - we use stuff that comes from our environment naturally.

A mean super human machine might as well require more power, this is what i meant be living creatures being maximum efficient in their environment.

Robots aren't very feasible now because we can't find a suitable source of energy for them to match their power output.

Emphasis is now.

Humans are inefficiant, we need air, water, food, and sleep...Not to mention proper quantities of each.

Why not just make a machine that runs off of water? We have a torch that works that way... Or how about it just refills hydrogen and breaths air to make water?

Yeah I try to keep my ear to the ground, I am not really a big subscriber to blogs but Christian and Ward do a good job with that site and usually check up on it every few days. Helps pass the time at work.

Your no fun.

I would probably take out 5-6 of them but that obviously doesnt matter because of people like you....Oh wait 500 years?

I dont give a crap.
