Couldn't they get hurt if they dropped one of the spikes through their
foot unwrapping it?


Seriously, you might need to define "spiking neuronal network code" to
get an answer to this.  Do you mean a realtime simulation of
synchronous neuronal propagation with the equivalent of latching windows
or the like to differentiate packet bursts?
