10 Technologies That Make Us Super-Human
4/22/2014

The Tactical Assault Light Operator Suit, or TALOS, being developed by the Department of Defense is being likened to the one worn by the lead character in 'Iron Man' for its qualities of near-invincibility. It can not only to monitor when a soldier has been injured, but also potentially heal a wound by applying treatment. The US Special Operations Unit, which is developing the suit, also is planning to include an exoskeleton framework with hydraulics around the joints to give soldiers extra movement, power, and strength beyond what they normally would have. A prototype of TALOS is expected in June, but this photo of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) WHAT is a sneak peek of what the technology may look like.  (Source: DARPA)

Indeed, Debera, this is the goal of targeted drug therapies--to treat only the areas that need to be treated so other areas are not affected. I think it's a bit of a Holy Grail of this type of treatment. Scientists are getting close.

Yes, Debera, I think that's exactly the point. The artificial brain will give doctors and scientists insight into how the brain works, not necessarily be something that will be used to replace a real brain in a human. That seems a bit too scifi and creepy! But you never know--with the way medicine is progressing, perhaps that will someday happen as well. I don't think I want to be around to see it, though.

Its a very big issue that treatment for cancer destroys other cells as well if this technology helps to cure cancer by just destroying the harmfull cells will be an excellent approach .

Developing an artificial brain will be a great acheivement for scientist. Because it is not necessary that they will be successfull in developing virtual brain they in dong so tthey will come across differen t functions and neurons of the brain which will help increase there understanding .

Thanks Elizebeth for such an interesting post , Brain to brain interface is a very good thing. It can help in many ways like controllig thr brains of the other not only this but also in controlling the actions of others as well. This technology can be very usefull in crime department to control the crime of the suspected people as well  This is what i beleive and it is just a assumption maybe i am wrong

Elizabath personally I do not like the idea of an others mind reading, Cause that I feels it will lead to lose the privacy and will lead unexpected problems. I do like to know the ideas of others also.
