Coming Soon: Cyborgs IRL

Cyborgs.  They make the best cops, obviously.  They're the only ones that are able to sign up to be interstellar astronauts.  They can construct a building in just a few hours.  I'm just sick and tired of the country with the most cyborgs winning all the gold medals in the Olympics!

Yet another sci-fi idea is crossing the border from fiction to reality.  DARPA and the Southern Methodist University Neurophotonics Research Center are developing new fiber optic technology to give artificial limbs the sense of pressure and touch.  This technology will seriously open the floodgates for the integration of robotics and computing with human biological systems.
Absolutely incredible.
