I was browsing TED talks the other day and found this.

It blew my mind. The technique they describe isn't all that complicated but the results are incredible. Where do you see the technology going over the next several years? I feel like having some sort of lightweight motor contracts like a muscle would propel this technology many steps forward.

That's extraordinary! It's too bad there's not a "good" way to just have wires act as nerves and extend down the arm as necessary. But it's great for those who can get to that type of technology.
