DARPA Mind-Man Interface Approaches the Horizon

The Darpa (Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration) prosthetic arm resembling the Anakin Skywalker prototype of Star Wars Glory is presumably moving toward actual production and may reach the market in just four years.

The arm, which was developed at a cost of over $100 million by DARPA and Johns Hopkins University over the past five years, is controlled by a microchip in the brain. The microchip records neuron activity and decodes the signals to activate motor neurons that control the prosthetic.
