Advancement in prosthesis – Star Wars Levels

Looking at this video from 2015 there is a clear advancement in the levels using sensor technology to register muscle movements in the fibers to  control the movement in a cybernetic prosthesis. This shows human augmentation is no longer a fantasy. A previous post shared a link to a cybernetic Olympics. Is this the future of the human where technology and biology are slowly becoming unified. Films such as Ghost in the Shell and The Matrix explore this.
