That's the beginning of a new technology. Pretty limited right now but with a lot of potential.

Keep your coffee cups off to the side, or he might reach out

We kind of already have that. The da Vinci robotic surgical system has a surgeon controlling a machine that's doing the actual physical surgery. Technically the surgeon is remotely controlling it and the original concept was to be able to use it from a remote location. I don't think it's being used that way yet but it's not a stretch at all. Just pray they don't lose the internet connection in the middle of a heart valve replacement surgery.
