Ok, now I know this is really disgusting and I'm not suggesting that I or ANYONE do this later on. But with how motorized robotic limbs are becoming, is anybody else thinking what I'm thinking. Specifically, you're at a night club and a multiple amputee comes in with the latest in prosthetic limbs. You whip out your driod and hack into the guys limbs (my guess is they'll be getting some form of wireless input/output to aid in diagnostics for doctors). Anybody catch where this is going yet? That's right, the next thing everybody notices is this poor quadriplegic doing the robot absolutely perfectly without having a freaking clue as to why. Ok, I lied, I would totally do this and encourage anyone else to try to find a way!
