It is that time of the year when things get hectic and there is not enough time to get things done. So, I went to a cabin several weeks ago, to get away from it all, and slow things down. And while I was there, outside of Rocky Mountain National Park, I read an article in the Denver Post that blurs the boundary between reality and science fiction. Robotic Hand in Mind’s Grasptells of a fascinating experiment where the electrodes of a robot hand are simply inserted into the nerves of a man who had previously lost his arm. This is more fantastic than the real experiment conducted with stroke victims who are able to regain function of a paralyzed limb by tying back the good or functioning limb. Talk about mind over matter! Or is this how the borgs first got started?
