Researchers and doctors at The Ohio State University have developed a brain implant that will allow people to control paralyzed limbs once again using purely the power of thought.

The new implant is placed in the subjects brain and correlates to a sleeve that they would wear around the paralyzed limb. In less than a 10th of a second, the thought signals from the brain are translated to the sleeve, which controls the muscles in the limb.

This is beyond fascinating to me. This is seriously some Star Trek meets Star Wars meets Sci-Fi fantasy stuff that the craziest of minds would think of.
