bionics 6151 Another Part of Me   Bionics of The Future

A robot arm. We’ve seen them several times in scifi movies and on television and in electronics shows that have been promising certain advancements in technology for what seems like eons now. But now it seems that once again fantasy and reality have met. The six million dollar man may still be in the distant future but the development of bionics as of 2010 still has the capacity to amaze and astound.

You see, it’s all about nerves. Whose nerves? Everybody’s.  It’s the nerves of the biologists who study the human body endlessly to figure out ways to improve and repair what has been lost or damaged – the researchers, who discover the technology and spend hours testing and retesting their data until a successful or satisfying conclusion is reached. And then, of course, there are human nerves – as in the ones in your body. When a limb is lost as a result of amputation or accident, the nerves suffer damage as well. But what scientists have discovered is that the brain can still transmit its “information” the the region where the loss was suffered. Or as National Geographic puts it “even though the flesh and bone may be damaged or gone, the nerves and parts of the brain that once controlled it live on.” (hey, that rhymes! :) )

Anyway, I’ll stop pretending like I know what I’m talking about and you can check out the story for yourself.

Did you ever imagine that there would be a bionic eye! And so soon!
