    It amazes me where science/technology/medical breakthroughs have taken us. Prosthetics can also be created that allow the user to feel pain. Did you ever see the segment of the person who had an implant in his brain that allowed him to make computer selections, and draw, with his thoughts alone? Astounding!

    That is so cool. There was actually a story line on Grey's anatomy about something similar and I wondered when I saw it if there was a program doing it in real life. The human brain is truly an amazing organ with what appears to be limitless potential.

    Wow, that is amazing. Advances in this field have been huge over the past few years. Hopefully, this technology will become more widely available in the near future.
