Still very slow, but they are continuing to improve. Signals from the brain are measured by 128 electrodes affixed to the subject's scalp, similar to an electroencephalogram (EEG). With the help of a software program, specific signals are picked out among the nebulous mass of information.
The computer's self-learning capacity allows it to identify individual brain patters and constantly improve its performance.
By analyzing neural signals it is possible to determine before the actual movement takes place whether a person intends to move his or her right or left hand, for example.

Very cool, here's the press release.
