CYBORG RAT GETS COMPUTERIZED CEREBELLUM (http://news.discovery.com/tech/cyborg-rat-computerized-brain-110928.html)

I, for one, welcome our new cyborg rat overlords.

Looks cool to me, although a smarter mousetrap just became a little less likely.

I wonder if they are going to send that rat back in time to kill Zuckerberg?

The way I figure it, as long as people like you don't stand in the way of people like us, then we can both live happily.

I want cyborg parts, you might not, that's cool, just don't get in the way of my cyborg parts and we're cool.

Why?

What right would those who do not want to get augmented have to stop me from getting augmented?

If I want to be 90% machine and 10% human, that should be totally up to me.

The same 'right' they have to deny you anything else.

If and when augmentation like this becomes possible for humans, it will have the same reaction that anything else too outside the norm ever did, such as radical or unorthodox religious preferences, for one good example.

Not saying it's right, just that that's the way it would be.

The only cyborg parts I want are replacements for my eyes so I can have normal vision.

Bad topic title, I came in here expecting to see a debate over whether using animals for laboratory testing is cruel or not....

My opinion on animal testing is pretty straight forward.

If you're blinding bunnies to make new shampoo, you're a ♥♥♥♥♥♥bag.

If you're blinding bunnies to find a permanent cure to some debilitating human condition, then I'm fine with it.

No joke, I seriously think what we saw in DXHR will be the next tech boom. Not exactly combat cyborgs but more along the lines augmentation that will make what we see now at the hospital look like the dark ages in the next 10 to 15 years.

Edit your work, Jesse Emspak. Rats are only that large in movies.

A robot rat?! What if Baxter Stockman makes again another Mouser Army? Do you imagine what will happen then? Robot mousers will eat evrything. But it will be very intresting to see if they can make the rat to be able to speak and act like human. I mean something like Splinter .

I like it. Hell, mix Deus Ex (HR) with Just Cause 2, and that there is a perfect game, IMO. ESPECIALLY IF IT HAS GRAPPLING HOOKS.

I was hoping this was about computers that take control of rats. I wanted to see a dancing rat.
