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!

Don’t you mean robot?  I’m pretty sure that you still need to have some biology to be considered a cyborg.

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.
