I heard of some guy doing something like that, too. I immediately dismissed it because it's so retarded.

I know about those. Those are the closest some-one's ever come to making a machine-to-human input without actually implanting electroned in the brain. The implants fit in the spiral thing in your ear, the one that usually absorbs sound waves into nerve signals.
See, they only work for ppl who have those nerves intact but have screwed-up earbones or eardrum or sound transmission into that shell thing.
Ever hear of Kevin Warwick? He's a British guy that thinks way to much of himself. He implanted a RFID chip in his arm and then wrote a book about himself being the first ever true cyborg.
I think that people with cochleat implants have first stake in that field if anyone ever wanted to find the "first true cyborg".
Kevin Warwick's claim is just plain lame. I mean, if a pet has an RFID chip implanted, which is done quite often now, does that make your pet a cyborg?!?
"Oooh, I got a bionic dog !!!" Pfffft. I just remembered. There was actually a show about a bionic dog. First the bionic man, then woman, boy, girl and finally came the bionic dog. 70s SciFi. *Shudder*
