Cyber Prosthetics

There is a growing demand for devices for people with huge injuries or disabilities and the creation for prosthetics of all different kinds. The potential for intelligent prosthetics is expected to start being explored. It is hoped that in the future, it is seen to have volunteers to have one or more limbs removed to be replaced with custom-designed, enhanced prosthetics. It's hard to tell now how many people would want to volunteer to have their healthy limbs replaced with a prosthetic. Reasearchers are striving to create prosthetics which could perform better than the original. It would be faster, stronger, more dexterous and more precise than an original human limb. Researchers plan on advancing by including neural interfacing, where the central nervous system can control the way an artifical limb operates and recieves information as well as being able to control the prosthetic limbs with your mind. Also, new materials are being made for high-strength and lightweight. Protecting against the risk of infection is a huge challenge since it will be connected to the human central nervous system, but is hoped to be reduced or eliminated in the future.

ProstheticsHow many people want to volunteer to go from human to cyborg?

Side notes

Cyber

1) With the help of 3D printing technology, replacing limbs will become considerably more affordable while allowing for limitless customization in the design of the artificial limbs.2) With the help of improved prosthetic limbs, those who have gotten into a severe accident or born without limbs will act as if nothing was lost at all.3) In the future, people will have the choice if they would like to turn into a human cyborg (with the right amount of money).
