    I love this kind of thing. The stories that really interest me are developments with companies like DARPA creating implants that allow for direct interface between the brain and machines instead of relying on nerves located in muscles.

Yes, it will be affordable for all who need this in the not to distant future... Xample: When the first digital watch came out, it was sold for over $500. Now you can buy one for 50 Cents. Unfortunately, he was in a terrible accident but scientific progress is helping. He really is the real life Steve Austin...A man barley alive...

    I remember seeing something like this but it was an experiment on a monkey (I hate those experiments) but the monkey was unable to control a cursor on the screen by moving it`s eyes or something to that nature. I thought that was pretty interesting. They were trying to make it so that in the future you wouldn`t need a mouse you would use your eyes and brain to control a cursor.
