Androids and Augmentation

Quick article on a new type of artificial skin:


Sounds super-cool. Androids can now be made to truly respond to the same physical inputs that humans do. I believe that taste and smell are the only two that I haven't seen around...although, I think I may have seen scent somewhere.

So, not only can the next level of android be made, but we can also consider the augmentation of humans!

It has always been a dream of mine to have a clock permanently dispalyed in the upper corner of my vision. With this type of skin, you could include humidity, temperature, possibly radiation levels, and weight.


Ahhh....science fiction....
