This article about remotely controlled humans looks quite scary at the first glance (direct link to video). On the other hand, application of this to flight simulators would be quite cool.

Once you read the article it seems that technology behind this effect is quite simple (just stimulate some part of the skin with electric current). It looks like we won't be able to do anything really interesting with the human nervous system for a long time. The current methods remind me of hacking a microprocessor with a hammer - if you punch it on just the right spot, you might knock out a specific part of it, but you really don't know anything about what happens inside.
