Ok so I was skipping through videos on the National Geographics website and found this one:

Monkey Brain Controls Robot Arm (http://video.nationalgeographic.com/video/player/news/animals-news/robot-monkey-apvin.html)

As the link says, they hooked up a monkey's brain to a robotic arm, and the monkey controls it completely through thought!! I find this phenomenal. Think of the not-so-distant future applications of this :idea:
