Nanowires connecting cells to machines

Closer to the borg every day...
"Science Daily — Scientists in California are reporting an advance toward one of the futuristic goals nanobiology and nanomedicine -- developing technology for "wiring" together individual cells and connecting cells via nanowires to external sensors and other devices."

Apparently, the cells grow in culture around the silicon nanowires, which then can be connected up to any inorganic devices on the other end.
