This Just In From The "Holy Crap!" Department

From today's NYT:
A paralyzed man with a small sensor implanted in his brain was able to control a computer, a television and a robot using only his thoughts, scientists reported today.
Ho-ly crap. Dr. Hawking, eat your heart out.

The choicest sentence in the article, though, has to be:
Also, ideally, the implant would transmit signals out of the brain wirelessly, doing away with the permanent hole in the head and the accompanying risk of infection.
