Technology and biology integration

Research of this nature is intriguing, yet does cause a moment of reflection on what does it mean to be human?…and what does our future hold as we integrate biology and technology into combined networks?: “With the ultimate aim of allowing paralysed people to walk again, a team at Duke University in Durham implanted electrodes in the brains of two rhesus macaques and analysed the electrical signals that drive their legs. The team then mapped the signals to specific leg movements and, via the internet, used them to control a pair of robot legs at the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International in Kyoto.”
