Recommendation of the Article
I would give this article a 7 out of 10. My reasoning for this is that it is its a great article but it could definitely use 1-2 more paragraphs of materials i could use. Otherwise i think it is a great advancement in technology and will be useful in the future, and would recommend it to anyone interested in the advances of technology.
