Heartwarming video!

This is a topic close to my heart because I used to work as a prosthetic technician. An amazing story about an amazing girl who celebrates being different.

The technology just isn’t there yet. Those arms are primarily made of fiberglass and resins with tiny motion “motors” in them. They aren’t really even motors but a common application of antigravity technology that uses an electric charge in a liquid suspension to provide the movement. So it’s very scalable and allows for movement in very small space or unconventional design, like false limbs. This design is about 5 years old and I remember seeing the first prototype that wasn’t quite as space age looking. If you notice she’s often pressing a button on the back of the hand to cycle through the presets. The next leap in this technology would be to actually tie it to brain sensors (which is currently used by fighter pilots to “think” functions on or off) but that’s probably down the road because most people are not going to wear a bulky head harness. I’m sure someone would but right now it’s not available. Anyway the same liquid electromagnetic technology in these arms is also in legs for amputees and allows fluid range of motion to provide a very natural gait both in above knee and below knee devices. I saw a double amputee actually hop and jump in his legs, even on one leg. It’s amazing stuff. With long pants on you can’t even tell that they are amputees.

wow your beauty and smart... I know I read somewhere that they actually created an artificial brain using simulator computer design molecules.

isnt it amazing what they can do now.

 

One day and it will not be long you will be able to have an entire new body part with all this stem cell research they do now. and even this will be obsolete.

 

Power to the girl in the video. Inspiring how shes made a disability into an ability. thats quite empowering.

 

Alex. Are you talking about quantum computing?  Star treks Data will be real soon. Not sure it will be in my lifetime but perhaps in the next 50 years with all the advancement.

I think she’s talking about the new computer brain model that mimics organic activity by using a gelatin suspension and tendrils to increase processing power. I read an article about that somewhere and the pioneers of this technology are basically saying that they are taking their design cues from organic models and actually trying to grow computers instead of build them. I assume that means primarily a plant based design arc. It’s interesting but could lead down a darker path easily.

 

My cousin is a bioengineering scientist and the last time I talked to her was around 2000 at Xmas. She weirded me out a little bit when she admitted that they crossed beans with lightning bugs to make flashing green beans. I really don’t talk to her anymore because she seemed to change into a very cold mad scientist type since I first met her as a bubbly teenager. I’m not sure what she is working on right now but it’s probably not self illuminating Xmas trees. It’s definitely something that has to do with splicing dna though.

 

But anyway there’s definitely a lot of technology that can be assembled into synthetic brains and even synthetic “people” but because it’s ripe for abuse on one end and would definitely trigger violent protests from religious zealots on the other, it won’t see any press. It’s very likely that such things already are in existence but remain top secret. We just get to see the mostly benign versions of things and stuff that’s outdated enough to power our phones and computers. Once they can miniaturize and mass produce something cheaply they market it, but there’s always something much more bleeding edge that only gets splinters of it revealed to publications. It’s uncanny but if you read popular science magazines from 20-30 years ago, much of that has already been perfected or become commercial. Even still there’s technology that was invented in the 1940s or earlier that’s still not publicly released. Or if it is proven to work it will only be in YouTube videos of cottage scientists showing their experiments. Nikolai Tesla held the original patent for cellphones and network battery charging and those are thought of as recent technology.

SO WHAT YOUR TELL ME IS Def Maybe on the new brain !!

 

Hey Bedlam I was talking exactly about what JB  just described....it just crazy how we are moving towards a West World civilization and instead of sir Anthony Hopkins one of trump kids might be at the helm Yukes

      Whatever Shampoo people use, Try not to over shampoo. Shampoo can and will strip the nutrients and oils from your hair if it is overused. Use Conditioner if you do not have dirty hair, and leave in some conditioner to help the hair stay moisturized and healthy. If you feel your hair needs a wash, then just use conditioner.

      Wake me if there is a good half time show at the "super" bowl.  I was a soccer player and never was all that interested in football.   How about the US women's soccer team.....awesome!

      I agree, cause ive seen two teams I enjoy watching tank. The Washington Redskins, and the Carolina Panthers. I also used to watch my former home team, Chargers, tank every year.

      She is one person who stands up to the current president and it appears he is aware of it, hence how he talks about her.  She would be a tough candidate I believe.

      I recently had a bone scan as well and all is well.  My doctor put me on Vitamin D a year ago.  I'm trying to be pro-active with my heath so I'm not going down without a fight!

      That is awesome Kymmie!

      That is why I am painting my nails, wearing what I want. If people don't like it tough tooki. Last week I had worn red nail polish. a few looks but no comments other than from a lady liking the color.   Yesterday was my second visit with my speech therapist. Got into some preparation exercises. I was able to get to a level I liked. 😁   Kymmie

      When i first moved to Bonnie Scotland. I took me ages to get use to being called "Pal" Where i came from it was a very male oreintated acknowledgement. But here all genders it can be associated with the term.  I was right upset for a while being called "pal" as i was thinking i was being outed everywhere. A very strange phemominan for me as it just doesnt happen. Well not for at least six years and then i was just finding my feet so to speak until i quizzed my partner about it who is native. I didnt feel so bad then.   Also "Hen" is used  between woman but men use it a lot when addressing a Female but not knowing there name. Isnt it funny how little regional things can be so diffrent?   A bit like how you would call someone darling down south if your a man talking to a woman in passing by  "Thanks darling" They say "Thanks Pal" or "Thanks Hen"   They do not really use sweetie. At least i have never heard it. Maybe im  just not sweet enough? 😉         Wow that is old school.  I have not seen one of those in years. I use to have the attachment if you had points but even they went out of use a few years ago.   Just a plastic one now for me im afraid.

      So she sounds like I should give her my support for what its worth...

      My opnion is. They should man up and play Rugby Union.  It's like this you speak of but without all the cotton and bubble rap.   Proper mans game 😉

      She's the senior senator from my state, and I've heard her speak. She's a breath of fresh, sincere, air.  Her primary passions are economic justice (she spearheaded getting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau established, which has been greatly curtailed under the Trump administration, sadly).  However, she was also a firm supporter of our statewide ballot initiative for transgender rights last year, which was successful.   I have no doubts about her support for trans rights on the federal level.  The question will be, how receptive will the U.S, Senate be to any Democratic president on any issue if it retains a Republican majority.   Fingers crossed,   Astrid
