Rocket has a “cybernetic skeletal structure, enhanced phalange and metacarpal bones, and a genetically augmented cerebral cortex.”
If cybernetic remotes functioned operationally at this distance we wouldn't have to send men at all.
It might easily increase the reliance of Earthfolk upon their cybernetic monsters.
Isn't that the created thing which the cybernetic system tries to follow?
There was a lot of cybernetic and robotic equipment, and astrogational equipment, that had to be made from scratch.
It's equipped with what you might call a cybernetic brain—although that's pretty inadequate as a description.
coined 1948 by U.S. mathematician Norbert Wiener (1894-1964) from Greek kybernetes "steersman" (metaphorically "guide, governor") + -ics; perhaps based on 1830s French cybernétique "the art of governing."
The future offers very little hope for those who expect that our new mechanical slaves will offer us a world in which we may rest from thinking. Help us they may, but at the cost of supreme demands upon our honesty and our intelligence. [Norbert Weiner, "God and Golem, Inc.," 1964]
cybernetics cy·ber·net·ics (sī'bər-nět'ĭks)
The theoretical study of communication and control processes in biological, mechanical, and electronic systems, especially the comparison of these processes in biological and artificial systems.
The general study of control and communication systems in living organisms and machines, especially the mathematical analysis of the flow of information. The term cybernetics was coined by Norbert Wiener, an American mathematician of the twentieth century.
