The Father of Cyborgs

Here’s a follow-up to the very first posting I made to this site, an article in Wired, entitled The Next Brainiacs. Creative Loafing Atlanta has an article with more about Dr. Philip Kennedy and his experiments implanting electrodes into the brains of severely disabled people. More background about Johnny Ray (one of the pioneering patients) is given, including the news that he died last summer of an aneurysm. Future applications–and implications–of this technology are considered. This is going to be interesting.
