Bionic man controls artificial limbs with mind

Not as sexy looking as Steve Austin, but it's a start!

    Bionic man controls artificial limbs with his mind - Engadget - www.engadget.com: "Jesse Sullivan lost both arms after touching live wires as a Tennessee utility lineman. Researchers have been able to fit him with artificial limbs he can actually control merely by thinking, moving them by will just as if they were real limbs. He also reportedly feels sensation in the bionic arms and, eventually, tiny sensors in the fingertips will allow him to feel texture and temperature as well."
