You could say the same about many things in our past that we, today, take for granted.
A living machine, more or less, this is. Artificial parts controlled by living tissue. Not conscious tissue.. Not cultivated from a being killed to
produce it. But symbiotic.
There can be a million uses in decades to come that can benefit from this. Or there can be one. We don't know.
I'd hate to see robotic military with the agility of the human component. But then, I hate seeing sons and daughters killed in the line of duty.
Ironically, I saw the movie "Stealth" last night... where the jet AI becomes almost aware. And then kills itself to save humans.
We're on the cusp.. It's to be expected we'll have detractors. But I look forward to the future. Whatever it brings, we are only now seeing it.
And this thrills me, more than it scares me.
