Why is everyone so cynical? My first thought on hearing of this is that this technology could be a real benefit to people who are handicapped,
especially those confined to wheelchairs. Imagine taking this a step farther, rigging up something whereby quariplegic people could mentally control
a mechanism connected to their limbs. Imagine using robots in situations too dangerous for people: as mindsweepers, to recover and diffuse bombs, in
high raditation zones. There are all sorts of ways this technology could be put to positive use.
