It's honestly better than the people who seem to think I'm a magic man who can heal them to 100% without any hard work or effort from themselves.
In contrast to replacement technologies, in 2002, under the heading Project Cyborg, a British scientist, Kevin Warwick , had an array of 100 electrodes fired into his nervous system in order to link his nervous system into the internet to investigate enhancement possibilities. With this in place Warwick successfully carried out a series of experiments including extending his nervous system over the internet to control a robotic hand, also receiving feedback from the fingertips in order to control the hand's grip. This was a form of extended sensory input. Subsequently, he investigated ultrasonic input in order to remotely detect the distance to objects. Finally, with electrodes also implanted into his wife's nervous system, they conducted the first direct electronic communication experiment between the nervous systems of two humans.  
As Cyborg's least favorite member of the ., Gizmo is always driving him crazy. In Super Robin , Cyborg shoots a tiny missile at his back, causing him to fall to the earth and land on a car.
