Fascinating and moving video on BBC news, a tetraplegic lady taking part in a cyber-medical study drinks coffee on her own for the first time in 15 years.

See the video
[Error: unknown template qotd]Definitely R. Daneel Olivaw and  Andrew, the bicentennial man (I'm referring to the novella, not the movie)

Note for those who keep pointing out that Data (or Daneel for that matter) are androids: an android is simply a robot built in human shape, not all robots are androids but androids are robots.
A cyborg integrates mechanical and electronic components with biological ones, a robot (no matter if android or not) doesn't : Andrew, in his quest to become human, turns from robot to cyborg.
