Mind Control Sensor is a Reality
A Massachusetts-based team has developed and implanted a sensor and that allows a man to control objects by thinking.
The trial has been done with Matthew Nagle who was paralysed in a knife attack 4 years ago. The technology known as neuromotor prosthesis (NMP) has allowed Matthew to:
- Move a computer cursor to open an e-mail
- Play simple computer games
- Open and close a prosthetic hand
- Use a robot limb to grasp and move objects
The uses of this technology could be of real benefit in the future and the idea of cyborgs could become a reality (just hope they’re not like the Cybermen in Doctor Who). You can read more about it over at the BBC.
