Paging William Gibson...

Watching video on your own skin. No doubt the Apple version will be called the iBorg.

Part of my brain thinks that's really cool.

MOST of my brain finds it really creepy.


I'm really glad we can apply this technology to something as trivial as a tatoo, but no one can build me a decent artificial leg that actually allows me to walk more than a few blocks and doesn't cost $40,000.

I like it more than most of the surgical stuff and tatoos that people put on and in their bodies. Functional. Waterproof. Can't lose it. If the batteries are dead, so am I.

If it could be done without unintended consequences, I'd love it. Seriously.

Oooh man! How long until reflex amplifiers and neural interfaces? I'm going to have to dig out my copy of Neuromancer, it's been too long.
