Pretty much yea. My logic is, that since there seems to be a gap between human and robotic bipedal movements at least for the moment, will it be simpler to just jam a bunch of cyborg electronics into the human body(which is technically a machine that already knows how to run and jump and navigate through physical environments on its own) than to slog through however many years it'll take for bipedal robots like Asimo to surpass humans physically. After all, i remember reading an article about a man in France who has already become the worlds first living cyborg (he has a robotic eye which is also a functioning camera) and is already capable of going around and conducting his own affairs, whereas most bipedal robots have trouble navigating through uncontrolled environments. Our evolution has already created a machine that can walk around and survive just about every biome on earth, why not just upgrade it instead of reinventing the wheel?

Your question is a mobius strip.

If you're asking whether robotics has biomedical applications, I believe the answer is duh.
I'm not talking about biomedical, thatd be just replacing what was lost with a robotic equivalent. I'm talking about upgrading already functional human bodies in a way that they can do all the superhuman things we want robots for, but without waiting for them to be smart enough to navigate unpredictable terrain. Pent put it pretty clearly, it'll be a long time before robots can navigate the world as quickly and gracefully as we do, so maybe cyborgs would be more immediately useful than robots, at least for a few decades.

This is the best day of my life.

Dammit, I promised myself I wouldn't cry.

Dok, Sarah Palin always runs.

She's been running every 1460 days of December for the last 102200 days of December 2014.

- A modern transhumanist retelling of Metropolis couched heavily in Janelle Monae albums

I was pretty sure that Janelle Monae albums were a retelling of Metropolis.
Yea, but that's why i wanna see it on film, with full-on cheesy 80's special effects and overwrought Soreyama-esque droid costumes.

I'd like to believe this lead to an avalanche of people paying for gas in checks

RPG Ghetto / Re: Roger and Prez Televisions's Plot Hole

Well, it turns out I'm pretty bad at this method. I can't do the steps in order, because if I just concentrate on one thing at a time I get major writer's block. This is the third week in a row after "starting" the campaign that I haven't had anything to present to the players; I was able to hold off the inevitable with a pure-RP "prologue" session, but I know it's going nowhere at this rate. I think I'm gonna have to devise my own way of doing things.
