World's First Double-Arm Transplant 36

quakeslut writes "The BBC has the scoop on the first double-arm transplant. Amazingly, after only two weeks or so, the recipient says that it already feels "as if these are my own hands." Please, keep the "give that guy a hand, or two!!" jokes to a minimum."

    As I'm looking at this, the advertisement shows a dude typing with his keyboard resting at a painful painful angle on his lap (it's propped up by the edge of the table), and all I can say,
    "Boy is that guy gonna' need a hand transplant 5-10 years from now..."

    Carpel tunnel is no picnic, people, but at least now I can be like my grandfather, who till the last days before he died of lung cancer insisted that the burgeoning pace of technology would give a cure for cancer long before he died of smoking.

    Um, yeah.

Leveraging always beats prototyping.
