Yesterday's Lousy TV Becomes Today's Reality With Bionics

If you're old enough to remember Steve Austin and Jaime Summers, you'll be amazed to read this article. A 25-year-old veteran can feel sensations in her bionic arm.

Let's hope we don't have to deal with an extraterrestrial-created Bigfoot, though.

Pretty damned amazing.

When you couple this with some other developments - chemically-powered artificial muscles, bio-electronic chips, rapid prototyping and three dimensional scanning - the artificial arm Will Smith's character sported in "I, Robot" starts to look a lot less science fictional.
