The work in mice demonstrates the answer may be yes,” he says. “But mice are not people. We simply don’t know what the consequences will be in mucking (xD) around. We are not ready for it yet.”

    First electronics were made 70 years ago.
    20 years later the digital age started.
    It is still in development.

    For those who are still young : you better don't miss it.
