I am pleased to announce that my friends at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry have created the first working models. You can read about them at LiveScience.com. Here is a picture of the first of these neuro-chips:
With one of these neuro-chips implanted into your nervous system, you will be able to use its built-in wireless networking transmitter to IM and talk to your friends without using your hands or vocal chords.
You will be able to hear all existing recorded music without headphones and watch any movie ever made just by closing your eyes.
You will have instant access to all human knowledge, allowing you to make an A+ on every test.
The vast memory on the chip will help preserve functionality even in no-service areas.
And as a special bonus, to assist your decision-making and conversations, I will send you brilliant thoughts so real and convincing you will not be able to tell them from your own!
UPDATE: CNN's Future Boy tells you more about it.
UPDATE: Brain Chip Alters the Mind.
UPDATE: Machines 'to match man by 2029': "Humanity is on the brink of advances that will see tiny robots implanted in people's brains to make them more intelligent, said Ray Kurzweil."
