    This is wonderful. It's good to see amputees being able to lead normal lives.

    Absolutely outstanding. A decade or two and the tech will be once again so far ahead that you will have flesh like robotic legs :D The blind will see, def will hear and the mute will talk. The beauty of technology :) Can't believe some people still fear it tho :/

    I recommend watching "The Transcendent Man" and check out 'Jason Silva' as well on Youtube/Vimeo.

    This is awesome and she's already so comfortable with it after less than a year.

    I'd like to see this technology applied to arm/hand amputees.
