In the upcoming sci-fi flick The Surrogates, technology is so advanced that you control a surrogate robotic form of yourself with your mind, telling it what to do and where to go so you pysically never have to leave the house (sounds like my cup of tea). Bruce Willis plays a cop who actually does need to leave his house in order to track down the person responsible for killing other surrogates. It's a pretty wild concept ... but how far off are we from it becoming a reality?

After the jump, check out a pretty cool behind-the-scenes featurette from the film that talks about the science behind surrogate robots, as well as how long we'll have to wait before we can create our own (much hotter than we are) surrogate robot. The Surrogates hits theaters on September 25.
