Robotic Arm by Dean Kamen

Dean Kamen, of Segway fame (among other things), recently presented a breakthrough in bionics: a robotic arm that behaves almost as if it was real (the demo is about 2 minutes 15 into the video):

The fact that this guy worked so much on the interaction between human nervous systems and machines is a reason to hope that this is almost real. A lot of progress seems to have been made since last time I wrote about this topic.
