Via Neurophilosophy I came across three great examples of neuro-implants and neuro-implants that show how fast we're getting there:
1. Neuro-feedback: Brainloop, a brain-computer interface for Google Earth
Speech neural implant which could soon enable a paralyzed man to talk again through recognizing brain-waves associated with sounds and ran by a text to speech computer program.
3. Attempt to produce collective music from brainwaves and heartbeats. Probably the idea was better than the results in this experiment ...
