No... That's the first.
Well, it's pretty amazing technology, but I have no desire to be "super" in any way.
I'm more interested in using technology to restore normal functions.
I prefer to give the super powers to our tools.... Like microscopes and telescopes.
If I had a choice between regenerative medicine and bionics, it would be regenerative medicine.... No machines in my body unless it's a last resort. And definitely no computer interfaces.
I'm biological and want to stay that way.

Yup... Until we can accomplish things via more natural methods, devices like this will have to do.
I hope you hear back.

I agree Kraven that regenerating retina cells and other organs is preferable but, this could eventually prevent and cure blindness. It will be years before it can be trusted and a long time before immoral insurance will cover it.
I did email them and hope I can learn more.
