They are experimenting with electromechanical limbs that are directed with the brain nerve impulses. Cyberlimbs?
Check this out:

quick quote:
"[...] researchers will also test new chips combined with telemetry systems, which process some of the recorded information on the chip before sending it to a processor implanted in the chest. The processor then wirelessly controls the arm. Current versions in use in humans and monkeys send information via wires coming out of the skull, which increases risk of infection over the long term."

Wireless? Processor implanted in the chest? Wires coming out of the skull? Sounds like Shadowrun to me wink.gif
