Every day it’s a gettin’ closer…

No, I’m busting out a Buddy Holly impersonation, but rather describing our continued march toward robotic man. Here is a short piece on recent developments in Time.

“What happens if a bionic limb surpasses the functionality of a human one? ‘Some may electively replace their healthy ones,’ says Meyer.

Yep. And that would make life better (else, why replace it). And that’s why robotic man is good. I discuss the ethics of this extensively in Evolve, which is pretty much all about this topic.
