    A Baxter robot has been modified to be controlled by a quadriplegic blowing into an ingenious mouthorgan like controller. It can perform quite complex tasks for the disabled man. Is this the future for disabled people?

    Repairing disabled peoples problems like a severed spinal cord nerve would be much better and that should be where they should be headed to help others.

    That is true, CT. However, it is also some way off, and the robot is here now.

    They could develop a shunt that could bypass the break and send the signal to the other section of the nerve that wasn't recieving it.

    We seem to be evolving into cyborgs. Computerized prosthetic devices and the nerve taps to interface with them are being developed fairly rapidly.

    The technology is already moving past Steve Mann's idea of wearable computing towards a more direct melding of man and machine.
