« Iraq 2006: Even Bush Didn't Believe What He Was Telling Us | Main | Democratic Debate »

April 17, 2008



This line of research has actually been going on for a long time, but it still has a long way to go.

There's nothing inherently wrong with the military researching this stuff - at least it has some obvious applications that would be useful and could save money and lives. And if the military improves this technology to the point that it has value to them, then it also has obvious applications in industry as well as potentially helping stroke victims and other disabled persons. As far as military research goes (admittedly, a sliding scale there), this gets a thumbs up.

Contrast that to, say, the F-22, which is an incredible waste of money; a fighter designed to gain air superiority against an opponent that no longer exists. But hey, they look really cool...
