Fishing Line As Artificial "Muscle"

tokizr But will they regenerate? (111 comments)

Strain and exposure tends to destroy nylon from my experience, when a muscle fiber is broken it gets replaced by one or more new fibers, how would you efficiently replace broken coils on a artificial limb?

Why JavaScript On Mobile Is Slow

tokizr Explicit memory management. (407 comments)

You could just 'force' people to use a language with explicit memory management, like by offering [better] support for that particular language (C/C++ is best but I understand people do not enjoy these lower level languages as much). I always thought that the best form of garbage collection is not having garbage collection at all, but managing your memory efficiently and having good allocators. Yet even on languages such as Java/Javascript you can be smart about your objects so to minimize the underlying allocations. I would suppose javascript may be a little harder since it's not strongly typed but it should still be possible.
