Neural Implants Gaining Momentum

Science fiction once again becomes science fact as neural implants gain momentum, aiding those suffering from spinal cord injuries.

Watch for an upcoming full story in Wired about how neural implants are helping individuals suffering from spinal cord injuries with issues such as bladder control.

We'll be seeing more and more progress, along the lines of predictions made by Raymond Kurzweil in "The Singularity is Near," as neural implant technology steadily erodes the distinction between human and machine, leading to the age, as Kurzweil coined it, of "spiritual machines," and raising questions about the meaning of spirituality in an era where humans bodily incorporate robotic components.
