Reversing deafness/blindness, creating artifical limbs that are as good as natural ones (if not better) all sound to me like projects mad scientists do. But, I'll bet my last dollar and hat that the fame at the end of it all will be enormous.
Everyone that uses glasses are disabled. Yes, disabled. I have miopia and wouldnt be able to function in society if I didnt had glasses. Yes, its that bad. Just to read this I would have to be like 15 cm from the screen. ANd there are millions of there with similar problems.
Yet its weird that we dont see ourselves as disabled, because with glasses we are almost normal. Nonetheless, if it wasnt for scientists, our life would be as bad as someone without legs. Maybe worst.
So, a lot of problems that we deal nowadays and consider as disabilities will probabily be reversed in the future and people wont even about it.
