The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

I like the happy music. Nice touch!
Happiness will be mandatory in the coming robotocracy. That one dude seems like just another cog in the machine there. Seems like a robot should replace him too.

Amputee Tilly with her new bionic arm. This was her first few seconds wearing it.
It was the last time she was seen alive. The arm was last scene heading toward the Whitehouse.

Wow,just fucking wow my dad lost a leg in a tornado when he was 14 years old. He would have loved this.

Unless of course it's utter bullshit. I hope it's not.

There have been some other pictures of it--see the Kittens Thread on Banter.

May not be perfect, but it is an improvement.

There are so many basic problems with prosthetics, particularly with "load bearing" types like legs. Pressure on the stump. No matter how you try, a "stump" cannot be designed to "bear weight" so you will have problems. At least with an arm you do not have that problem. You will have problems with the remaining arm bearing a load, for example.

Still, a quibble.

I am sure prayer brought all of this, right?

He would have looked pretty silly with a hand attached to his leg stump.

The BJ machine isn't really a robot, only an existing type of sex toy with an unconvincing face like mask front end.

There may well be sex robots at some point. But they will go the way of analog video disks.
