another robot 'wife' article

we are however creating cyborgs already
cyborg arms aren't for everyone, but they are being tested.

From time to time (especially just before exams) I will put some of my lecture notes on here. These lecture notes are partly for me to remind me which topics I want to discuss in more complete detail - but also can be of use to you. They are not a substitute for attending lectures or reading the textbook, but some students find them a useful addition.
