Cyborg Cometh

Posted by Trent Walters at 2:52 PM
Scientific American, reporting on Nature, said that a chip placed into a paraplegic man's motor cortex:

...enabled him to open and close the fingers of a prosthetic hand as well as use a robotic arm to pick up pieces of hard candy and drop them into a technician's hand. He could even control his television, all while conversing with those around him.
