Remember the exoskeleton that Professor X wore before he and the X-Men headed onto Asteroid M to thwart Magneto’s plans, right before Wolverine’s adamantium was ripped out?

Their labor of love, the LifeHand, is connected via electrodes to an amputee who can then perform complex movements with it using thought alone. It supposedly works easier when you think of it as a natural extension of your body. The trick now is to find out how these implants can be made permanent.
