if the implants get rejected...well...i have a question: there is no way to enginner some kind of implant cover (like a skin) made of the same cells as the patient, but with some kind of layer (may be fat), so the body dont feel like it like a stranger.

Or may be, the sensor can be made of some kind of artificially made neuron made from a cultive of the patient.

Or have a network of progressively more hardware, less wetware, so, near the sensors, is pure wetware, and near the computer interface is pure hardware.

Ahh the coffee is making me thinking weird things...

the remaining pair...what will measure? a ever increase rate of information? or what?
