Real life Cyborg - Hopefully this happens sooner than later.

This is really incredible. Besides the issue of how much this capability could increase someone’s own strength or abilities, can you imagine what this technology will do for the physically impaired? People with MS or any other circumstance where someone has lost the use of their skeletal or muscular system could be given another chance at a fully productive physically life. One of the researchers in this video brings up a good point, and that is that complete human artificial intelligence in a mechanical device is impossible, but creating a Cyborg, or a mechanically enhanced human would be easy. This is something that the military should be looking into, if not to enhance our fighting troops, to as least give them back their mobility after an accident. Most of this video is subtitled so you might have to watch it twice to get the full impact.
