    A long but fascinating, enthralling, and well-written article. It seems like the science fiction vision of cybernetics is really starting to come to reality when a man can alter the efficacy and subjective quality of his hearing just by downloading new software onto a prosthetic device.

    Thats a really cool article. I think some places are trying to develop an implant for memory as well. Still a loooooong way to go in developing cybernetic technology that actually works. Part of this though, I think is due to what they were talking about in the article, each persons physiology is different.
