Do Electric Monkeys Fling Virtual Poo?

Posted: 7th October 2011 by affehaus in geek stuff, tech, things I need

Researchers at Duke University have developed a brain implant that allows monkeys to manipulate a prosthetic arm via mind control.

“The animals used the device to control the arm by thought alone, and feel the texture of the objects it touched through electrical signals sent directly to their brains.”

This is research intended to develop power exoskeletons to aid paraplegics, which is great and noble and all that… but I want my prosthetic limbs. I’m ready for to volunteer for the research.
I’d be happy with an additional set of arms, but ideally? I want wings.
