I would argue that modern man has to remember far more than our ancient ancestors.

Consider our education; even disadvantaged nations have compulsory education until 12 or 16 where even the most basic of subjects would seem incredibly complex to prehistoric man, maths, reading and writing.

And even if the vast majority of what we know is comparatively mundane compared to the tools for survival they required, it doesn't detract from the fact of its complexity.

I'm no expert, but even their art was only as complex as our grade schoolers which to me is indicative of an ability to form and communicate abstract ideas.

It's very niche. You have to be in a very narrow band of disabilities to be able to get use out of it. For example, lots of people who use rollators can walk unaided for small distances and might find this too cumbersome and a lot of wheelchair users can't use one or more of their legs which this requires.

Don't get me wrong, it is fantastic engineering and will absolutely transform the lives of those who can get benefit from it, but it won't revolutionise the industry.

Underground is trickier, will need lots of drilling and boring. Lava tubes are annoying not flat or level. It will happen but not until the surface is established.

What is useful though is that the surface is covered in regoilth. The company that can viably turn regoilth into cement on the moon is going to make bank. Cement is a very good shield against radiation.

Nearly four full months at 35 hours a week is a hefty community service tariff. Plus being a felony comes with its own disadvantages.

And there are other criminal charges and the $5m lawsuit still in the works with him already pleading guilty on this, isn't going to help.
