My wife is sitting here Oprah, and there is a f*cking bionic woman on there!

She lost her arm in a motorcycle accident and somehow got involved in some special program that was doing tests on new types of prosthetics.

Several year safter the accident, she had a surgery where the nerves endings that used to go down to her left arm were re-attaches to muscles in her left peck.

They, she was outfitted with a removable arm on a sling type of thing worth $4M. There are electrodes in the harness of the arm that sit over top of the places where the nerves are grafted to the muscles in the chest.

Now, when she wants to move her arm, she just thinks about it in the same way you think abotu moving your own arm. The electrodes pick up the different muscle twiches under the skin and the robotic arm moves around.

It's unreal. I mean... she's not going to be playing concert piano or anything, but... damn.. this is crazy.

You think she can diddle herself with that thing?

EDIT: I'm a pervert, aren't I?

Have you seen that guy who's a quadriplegic who has the same thing grafted into his brain? I read about it in Wired a while ago. He can manipulate a mouse pointer on a computer monitor by thinking about it. Totally crazy. They told him to think about moving a mouse with his hand in a certain direction and then they would map how his brain sent the signals etcetera. After a while the computer learned enough that he can control it with pretty amazing dexterity. He also said that he doesn't think about moving his imaginary mouse anymore, he just thinks of it as moving the pointer. Kicks the sh!t out of Chris Pike's one or two beeps!

No, but I made a similar joke. My wife had gasped, "FOUR MILLION DOLLARS!?" and my response was:

For another $2M, you can get a bionic big toe that goes "SHaa-naaa-naaa-naaa" when you run.

That always killed me. One beep... two beep. The very basis of binary code and all Pike could do is answer yes or no.

Oh yeah, one more thing walker, it's okay, you don't have to say 'my wife was watching Oprah' Stand up and take it like a man. Say: 'I was watching Oprah the other day!' And then lay this sweet PIP screenshot on whoever gives you trouble:



After this was taken I got my ass handed to me by the 'Canes... They got lucky...

In his defense, Oprah has become mildly hot these days. Or was that last year, and she's fat again? I can't keep up.

You must be getting real drunk early to think that.
