The way it works is this: scientists plant electrodes around three main nerves in the test subjects' arm stumps and then a machine
Science + Harry Potter = Tomorrowland? Count us in!

The sci-fi/fantasy adventure, which is the brain child of director Brad Bird, who wrote the movie with Damon Lindelof, sounds like it's going to be one heck of a film!
Damon revealed why they believe the film captures a Harry Potter-like mysticism!
