I really enjoyed this article on the future of prosthetics and the accompanying 60 minutes video:

Kamen's CNC workshop in New Hampshire was also very cool.

It's not off topic at all. I think prosthetics are very important to machinists. I'm banking on medical science advancing enough that they can give me robotic appendages after I sacrafice my real appendages to the fiersome machine gods. Sort of like Star Wars and the fake hand ...

Fantastic!!! I was glued to the video. I am about 15 miles from Walter Reed and about 5 miles from Navy Medical. The video makes you wish you could quit your job and help. Thought it was GREAT!!!!! Fred

So when your wife kicks butt with her new knee-mill I better stay far out of her way.

I predict much backlash in my future.
