Aargh, I read about this a few days ago in the newspaper, I was going to make a thread on it, and I forgot to!
Well, given the choice between 'not having a pulse and being buried in the ground' and 'not having a pulse and carrying a power supply around', I
choose the second one.
One interesting thing that my newspaper article noted was that many of the usual tests for health, like pulse, blood pressure, and such, are going to
be seriously messed up. Since the device 'provides a continuous flow of blood' as opposed to the pulses that normally occur, doctors have to look
for other signs to test some of his vitals.
This guy will have a couple neat tricks to show at parties, though... "hey, check it out, man, no pulse!"
