Shouldn't be long until we have robots walking around in our place. Think of outsourcing manual labor with a fleet of robots controlled by people in need of work on the other side of the world.

There are 10 parts to this, each from one year of the project. I watched the first 3 last night and #3 is a good summation of the first 2 with a little extra, really interesting stuff. The group has successfully modeled part of a brain, what they call a neural column, and have actually taught "it" to control a tray with a ball on it via control of virtual muscles.
