a virtual or mechanical artificial agent.

What Is It?
Robotic Limbs have the ability to take signals from the human brain and translate those signals into motion in the artificial limb.

Attempts to replicate the many factors that combine to make a human hand as useful as it is have met with limited success. Even the most sophisticated robots of fiction and fact usually sport nothing but a pair of crude claws. However with new technology, the robotic arm is currently transforming more lifelike, and compatible. Soldiers, disease, accident victims are all factors in an artificial limb. Many include not only arms but legs, from knee all the way up to hip. Deformities also result in the use of these prosthetic devices. Children and still growing applicants will probably have an artificial arm made out of plastic or metal.

"Japanese scientists are continuing to push for a cyborg future, as researchers at Osaka University are attaching electrode sensors directly to the human brain, to study how the electrical activity can be interpreted to operate mechanical devices. The aim of the research is to develop real-time mind-controlled robotic limbs for the disabled. The procedure, which does not involve puncturing the cortex, places an electrode sheet at the central sulcus, a fold across the center of the brain near the primary motor cortex (which is responsible for planning and executing movements)."

Artificial Limbs and Robotic parts clearly influence the human mind into thinking about more power, strenghth, and looks.
