Robotic Limbs and Jack Vance

| No Comments


Today's New York Times has an article in their Science section on brain research being done to assist paralyzed people, with the possible option of prosthetic (robotic) limbs in the near future being considered, which you can read here.

51UkHz5c-pL__SL500_AA240_.jpgAnd in last Sunday's Magazine section, the NY Times profiled science fiction author Jack Vance, who's been legally blind since the 80s, yet, until his just announced retirement (at 92!), has continued to produce novels and a forthcoming memoir (see photo at left).  Read his story here. (Mr. Vance's books can be located through the library here.)
