Well, that looked a little crude to me, but I'm sure the technology will improve.
While I'm interested in this tech for making people "whole" again, I'm not a fan of human enhancement.
I have no desire to enhance my body or mind with machines or computer chips.
In my opinion, being a biological unit is a strength, not a weakness.
I can just imagine what would happen to this planet if we merged with machines and didn't have to worry about what we breath or eat. Biology and mortality make us cautious.

You would use it like a tool. So long as it stays that way, I'm happy.

It would be great to have a third hand for many jobs I have done and for mothers. I am thinking along the line of something you wear like a glove when you need it.
Imagine taking calls from providers, customers that need your help. You have to talk on the phone, type into the computer and write all at the same time. In my case many times I took 800 calls and private line calls also came in. The private calls were from people I always helped but some were irate.
Mother's have to hold, comfort babies, children and make bottles. Mother's drive babies and make sure they have their bottle. They have to cook, clean, care for and comfort children simultasoely.
Every job I had required multi tasking.
I worked with providers I helped them with billing, I did provider relations, public relations, trained and supervised people. I did customer service, worked with people from the whole U.S. and Europe.
We should not link with AI but, we use them to make life easier.
