Merging Man and Machine

“The Bionic Age” in which technology is advancing to mimic human life…though it may not be a new concept, robots are becoming more and more relevant. Disregard Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator  (although he really could be a robot), it is interesting to see how the machine is becoming more human-like. Would you really want a mechanical arm to replace yours if you lost it in some freak accident? I think it is fascinating to find comparisons between artificial life and natural life- what makes the two so different? Would a computer shaped like a hand be such a bad appendage? I don’t know…maybe not. I think I’d like to have an excuse to say, “Go go gadget arm!”
