Monkey controls robot arm through neural interface

 So now the money can dig in someone else’s butt too!!  They should hook these up at the zoo so when someone taunts them they can goose you.  This actually reminded me of someone I may/or may not work with.

Researchers at Duke have implanted a neural prosthesis in the brains of a monkey, connected same to a robot arm, and taught the monkey to work a third arm through the use of its mind. The Flash animation from the Duke U site is a scream. The filthy monkey, it manipulates its robot arm. Link (Thanks, Justin!)
