    I thought this was an extremely cool article and video on the future of prosthetics:

    Kamen is quite an inventor, and his New Hampshire workshop with all the CNC machines was cool.

    It's good to see the government is funding things like this.

    Best,

    I saw the segment on 60 minutes last night and aside from the impressive nature of the shop and the prosthetic arm research, I was even nicer seeing such enthusiasm ficused on our returning soldiers and THEIR needs! Money well spent I think.
