    see, I am in a different boat. I get automatically turned off when I see achievements in quotes:

    Nose cell procedure enables patient to "walk"

    Brain implant enables patient to "play guitar"

    I understand that this type of technology is Gonna get better in incriments but damn it's frustrating and I just needed to vent a little

    The title should read "Implant Lets Paralyzed Man Barely Grasp Jar". So disingenuous to even mention "Play Guitar" in the title. Cyborg is our future, but long way to go.

    BBC is the worst of the offenders on this stuff... I see they're even beating their old story line about nose cells in the same article under New Era. GADS!

    This looked like a major breakthrough on the news last night. Instead of using a nerve to reroute the signal from the brain, equipment did it. Granted, it's still in it's infancy but it is a novel approach to restoring function.

    I think there was a method to make music using EEG helmet. Not the same as playing the actual instrument, though, and pretty difficult to master, I hear.
