Film at 11: Osteocutaneous integration!!

Cyborg Arm Plugs Directly Into Bone.

I'm not sure if this is "wow, awesome" or "ack, squick".

Have I mentioned that I'm a little squeamish? Working in a hospital for four years did nothing to alleviate that.

I'm leaning toward the former, of course, but there's just something about pin in bone sticking through flesh that makes me squirm a little (and not in a good way). "Osteocutaneous integration" is a magnificent buzzword, but I want more details about just how they're going to keep the flesh-to-metal interface intact and prevent infection.
