I love the future...

I was watching TV in Japan where they had a special on robotic prosthetic limbs. I couldn't understand everything but Tokyo University fitted a little 11 year old girl with a replacement arm for free after she'd lost hers in a car accident. It was able to read her nerve endings so she could pick up a pencil, make a peace sign and catch/throw a ball. She said it was heavy and she had to concentrate to use it, but that it was cool. It's just the first step in robotics to start making limbs like this more commonplace. It makes me excited for the future.
