            I wouldnt, i like to be able to pass metal detectors without beeping.

            And if people started grafting metal to our bodies to enhance this or that and get weapons we would have piles of dead people all over the place soon enough.

            And think of the spam mails... "Bigger is better, Add 15 inches hydralic dingdong to please your mate"

            So no.

                  Probably. If we're talking Shadowrun esq, then yeah, but no weapon augmentations (Sans Smartlink).

                    I'm fairly certain that I've seen documentaries about powered prosthetic limbs that are controlled directly by the nervous system, and I KNOW that they've successfully attached powered prostheses to existing tendons. It wouldn't be that difficult to substitute a gun for a finger on a mechanical hand. I don't think it would even be that difficult to make the finger and gun interchangeable...

                    Oh, and would I want to be mechanically enhanced? Only if it gave me an ability that I wouldn't otherwise have. Having a gun built in to my hand (or shoulder or hip or whatever...) doesn't do anything for me, as I already have the ability to hold a gun. Now, if I lost a hand, I would be willing to replace it with something that would give me more ability than a plain ol' prosthetic replacement would give me. And I'll jump on the bandwagon, too: once I'm able to "jack in", I'll be needing a personal nurse to supervise my nutritive IV and to moniter my electronic muscle stimulation. My ass will be strapped to a TempurPedic chair/couch/bed for the long term!

                      No weapons augs?

                      So I can't have my Wolverine package (wireless network access chipset, hardened skeleton, nano-healing subsystem, and arm sheathed mounted carbon or nano-fiber blades)?

                      Heck, I can surf the web now.... ;)

                        That's entirly different. I can guarantee you I'd have titanium bone lace though. Crack some skulls and you don't even need muscle!

                          You were once like the newbie who needed a hand from above and TacticalGamer gave you it.

                          You owe the newbie who comes after you that same outstretched hand from above on your honor as a Tactical Gamer.

                          Tactics at TG come from trust and friendship, not meticulous detail and rigid discipline.

                          Everyone should be assumed mature until proven otherwise.

                              Your brain on computers... any questions?

                              I just thought I would throw up this article and see what people think of it. I know that there are alot of cool ways to interface with computers now, like voice commands and hand genstures and even motion tracking the users eye. This one beats them all though.

                              Peter: Oh yeah? Him and what army?
                              Chris: The U.S. Army.
                              Peter: Oh, that's a good army.
