Discovery Tech Weekly Update

http://dsc.discovery.com/technology/wide-angle/present-day-terminators.html -- Terminator Salvation opens this week, and I couldn't resist the cyborg angle. The movie conjures up human-machine hybrids and robotic armies doing soldiers' jobs. I know what these mean in Hollywood, but what do they mean in the research labs around the country that are developing ways to meld electronic components with living tissue? And what does the future of war hold when robots will be charged with combat? It's all about as freaky and as scary as the movie. We explore it all on this week's Wide Angle: Present-Day Terminators.
