Today, the first woman gets a bionic arm to replace one she lost. Sooner than you think, a plastic surgeon is going to amputate the arms of a rich bored kid to replace them with metal arms as a fashion statement or a “body upgrade”.
I think it’s great that people without limbs have this available - a partially thought-controlled replacement arm. I know how difficult it can be to do normal tasks when I’ve just jammed a wrist or something - I can’t even imagine losing a limb. And while this technology isn’t perfect, I imagine an imperfect arm is better than no arm.
But it’s a new world out there, and it’s only a matter of time before this is cosmetic surgery. It remains to be seen whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing.
