    I noticed that too Hopefully not too much muscle needs to be used.

    For something like this it must be better to use muscle from his knee than his elbow.

    Yeah, there aren't many unused muscles going (though you'd think one could lose a bit from the more massive groups, if as clearly there isn't, a choice). With a bit of luck we will be able to grow entire muscle groups one day, but that would still leave the problem of which nerves to control them, to do away with the electronics.
