   In your opinion, how likely is it that within the next couple of 
   hundred years we will develop a way of sending and recieving very
   specific signals to the brain--signals precise enough to simulate most
   of the sensory input we recieve from the world around us.


I know that artificial prostheses are being worked on for amputees. There
are two major types of design but I only remember the one that was more
effective: 

- You take the severed nerve and run it thru a silicon array. This array
picks up signals, interprets them and then runs them down to an artificial
limb effecting the appropriate reaction.
