It's called progress. Even though you can't see the applications for this technology, the people working on it can. I guarantee you'll see this "avatar" tech being used to save lives in the future. Besides, it's not like they're using your tax dollars.

It could be used to let a paraplegic walk and talk and live a somewhat normal existence, or anyone that's bedridden and get move on their own.

Maybe today I'm just pessimistic, but I see a "wonderful" application for law enforcement and military. 

And only after it's well settled there,  it will spread to more civilian applications. 

Of course that's the way usually tech grows,  but this time it will impact more directly our lives. 

Unless we obey and comply,  that is.

Ok, you go rush in to that house fire and I'll use an avatar. I should take your silly point and beat you with it but you're unlikely to ever respond or learn from it. You know, being so open to new ideas and all.
