Someone mentioned to me another frightening prospect of this research as well: the use of these electronic gadgets in interrogation - to torture POWs or other prisoners, etc.
However, the need for good prosthetic limbs is something to consider. Perhaps there ought to be federal government-imposed restrictions on the use of such devices so that only medical treatments (working prostheses) arise from the research & a ban would be imposed on any military or non-medical technologies that could arise from the research.
