What does society already look like?

“The research Jan was involved in is part of the agency’s Revolutionizing Prosthetics program, which is ongoing and aims to continue increasing functionality of systems so service members with arm loss may one day have the option of choosing to return to duty,” Adams added.
This may mean that mind-controlled robotic replacement prosthetics could be ready for issue in the near future. Adams said that the dexterous hand capabilities developed under the program have already been applied to small bomb disposal robotics, which should help keep soldiers out of life-and-limb-threatening situations.
FK – One wonders what the ‘watchers’ were capable of when we were still chasing our food and fighting cave bears for the left overs.
