Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory filed a patent earlier this month for eye and ear implants that can be controlled from outside the implantee's body. The patent application discusses things like magnetic forces and electrode arrays, but as far as we can make out it's not anywhere near as amazing as how your mom still gets you to clean your room from 100 miles away.
