Default Incridible new technology

Here is something from the news. One day the same technology will power the turn-indicators and replace the remote of our ICE?

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/articl...NGMPJUDCG1.DTL

Excerpt:
Paralyzed from the neck down, but connected to a computer by a wire implanted into the top of his brain, Matthew Nagle had only to imagine that his arm was moving a cursor across the computer screen -- and the cursor obeyed...

Similarly, he could use his thoughts to cause a rubber prosthetic hand to open and close, or to manipulate a robot arm to grab a piece of candy and drop it on command. He could change the channels and control the volume of a television set...

Researchers hope they will one day be able to help paralyzed people regain control of their limbs using techniques that seem ripped from the reel of a science fiction movie.
