    Is it possible that in the future humans will be half humans and half robots, for example human brain in robot body?

    Sure. However that would be far in the future. As of now they are working on certain nanbots to enhance our various systems and rid ourselves of certain viruses and abnormalities. They already have some form of these to cure certain types of brain dysfunctions, although I can't remember off the top of my head which ones.

    Scientists already have made first devices that are working from people mind.
    These devices are reading electric impulses from brain then send these impulses to computer which send signal to this device that can be robotic arm or leg. Is it correct?

    there is a theory that all the human mind is, is a mathematical equation being carried out. if we could replicate that equation, and had a computer powerful enough to replicate it (some people believe big blue already has the capability) you could live forever, on the hard drive of a computer, or in a completely robotic body, so you would never die. Also transferring your persona to a computer would give the opportunity for "matrix like" virtual reality

    I think that it will never be possible to transfer human mind in to computer, because it will be like to copy it, because mind is created in the structure of brain.

    An interesting notion. I believe one day we'll be able to store information and knowledge into our heads like an encyclopedia, making memory far more efficient. But of course having the knowledge is one thing, but being able to apply it is a completeley different one. But I'm not sure I'd be fond of it if I read in the future in my head, an article about physics or geology and then the words "Citation needed" pop up from nowhere.

    Still, there may be software for the brain that gives your the knowledge to apply it.

    I may have 'nanomachines' in me, but not actually being a cyborg. I'd only use that technology as a lazy arse way of not having to study. :P
