Substrate Chauvinism

Substrate Chauvinism is a narrow belief-system emergent from the mixing of belief systems of old religion, and new concepts such as substrate-independence. Substrate chauvinism is the conviction that only biological matter can carry moral worth. Consequently, it is used to reinforce the belief by some, that self-aware AI, could never be regarded as personages, as they are inorganic.

Energy Recycling, Lighter Robo Legs
Humans are able to naturally recycle about 40% of the energy in a springy step. If this can be accomplished in artificial legs, then the motors and batteries will not have to be quite as large and heavy, making life easier for developers and potential future users of the technologies, such as exoskeletons, prosthetic limbs, robots and other artificial substrate locomotion devices.
