    It all appears to be science-fiction.
    But we all know how new technologies can eventuate in a decade or two.

    I'm usually critical of new technology where man is almost playing god - but in this case i'm all for it.
  2. Just wondering if they make make some 'bits' grow back bigger than they were ... :?
    :LOL: :LOL:
  3. For the millitary, gotta love the mentality, "If they cant keep themselves alive, we'll make medicine better so we can try fix them"

    Nothing wrong with the re-growing of a limb, but how-bout you train your soldiers a bit better there mr president...

  5. The main reason the US military are doing this is that because of better battlefield medicine these guys instead of dying like a hero, are coming home as broken men and it's really not very good for morale.
  6. Or grow extra ones.....
  7. :p You're over simplifying it... the soldier shouldn't have been in that area in the first place with proper training, he'd have already killed the opponents :p

    AMI had this years ago apprently... why aren;t these guys catching on... up yer nose and away it goes... ;)
