'Cyborg' spinal implant could help paralyzed walk again
Jared Sperli stashed this in science
This is quite a breakthrough:
Writing in the journal Science, where the results were published, science writer Robert Service said: "Soft flexible nerves connected to unyielding silicon and metal - the combination has spawned many a Hollywood cyborg.
"The implants Lacour’s team created still have to be wired to the out- side world to operate, but she and her colleagues are designing wireless versions of the technology. Watch out, Hollywood, reality is catching up."
