A bone to pick with real-life bionics

From Futurismic:

"Science, as well as science fiction, has long dreamed of replacing lost

or damaged (or simply inadequate) human limbs with bionic prosthetics.

Progress has been slow to date, as it's notoriously hard to get the

human body to accept non-biological materials as 'part of the

furniture'. A breakthrough at University College, London may change all

that though - a way of securing a titanium rod into human bone, and having the skin heal and mesh around it without bleeding or infections."
