Its great that some much progress has been made here. Though, we have the tech to build these, most are out of reach for the avg. person.
Me, personally, I would not mind being a complete cyborg, because I have extreme arthr. The interfaces need some work because the speed of the limbs are a good bit slower than our origionals.
It will be truely remarkable the next 10 to 15 years!

Well, If I have artificial arms and legs, I would be a cyborg. If I were totally rebuilt using state of the electronics and mechanical/electrical-electronic stuff….but had a human brain, I would be a cyborg.
When the brain, the human mind is out of the equation, then you would only have a flesh covered robot.
