    That is so amazing!* Next, she will need an independent robot robot that can detach itself from her wheelchair and do things by her thought control. =)

    Thank you for the share. The vid brought a tear to my eye because it hit close to home for me.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidI will say this:

    The technology is truly amazing. However, if I were to become a tetraplegic I would eventually request assisted suicide. That doesn't look like a dignified way to live life on this planet.

    Do these machines help people bath themselves? Brush their teeth and cook their foods? I personally can't fathom living a life dependent on machines for everything and possibly humans for bathing, grooming, etc.


    Have you ever seen The Diving Bell and the Butterfly? Great film!

    Sometimes I pretend I am using my mind to move my Roomba.

    My dog likes to pretend she's using her mind to control the r/c helicopter as it chases her around the living room. icon_lol.gif
