Think the sci-fi movie Avatar was a little too far-fetched? To recap the movie's plot, we watched a group of scientists create genetically engineered avatars (Na'vi) so they could mine for a valuable mineral on the moon Pandora. Turns out, the most ludicrous part of the entire movie may have been that we only watched it in 3D, rather than experienced it for ourselves.
Scientists have already developed video game controllers that give players the ability to control on-screen movement with their brain waves, paralyzed patients can control a robot's movements with just their thoughts via brain implants, and in Israel, a test subject was recently able to effectively direct the movements of a robot located nearly 1800 miles away.
