Saw what I did there in the headline? Clever right? hahaha. oh not that funny? Well ~ uh hem~ ok never mind.
A Technology Win! Introducing the Thought Control Robotic Arm! All one simply needs to do to move the arm to manipulate the actions is to think!
“The system relies on an implanted 96-channel microelectrode array attached to the brain that records the motor cortex neurons responsible for arm movement. Because the implant reads the very neurons that are normally activated during arm movement, the people in the study didn’t require any explicit training or instruction in operating the roboarm.”
The possibilities! Check out the YouTube video below of “BrainGate” technology in action, this truly is incredible!
I’m sure there are allot of things a thought control arm and hand with fingers, would be useful for!… insert weird ideas here
