This Brain Implant Could Change Lives

8913 ratings | 372409 views
It sounds like science fiction: a device that can reconnect a paralyzed person’s brain to his or her body. But that’s exactly what the experimental NeuroLife system does. Developed by Battelle and Ohio State University, NeuroLife uses a brain implant, an algorithm and an electrode sleeve to give paralysis patients back control of their limbs. For Ian Burkhart, NeuroLife’s first test subject, the implications could be life-changing.

Take all the foreign aid we're wasting abroad and invest it into projects like these! Hundreds of billions of dollars might be able to expedite these types of technological advances.

this would be awesome in or not only for force feedback using muscle stimulation instead of some brak mounted to the fingers and if you could get a brain reader chip installed for like 200$ than it could serve as a controller

So he's training himself to be able to trigger the sensor... Yet everything displayed could easily have been done by a single researcher pushing a button to activate the electrodes, while the rest pretend that it's working... A sensor that reacts to brainwaves isn't very practical, there's no specific spot to implant a sensor for any specific task. So he's essentially learning what thoughts/area triggers the sensor to grasp, while a bunch of other unintentional thoughts could also trigger it. Wouldn't it be easier to make a pulley type system so his bicep arm movements can tighten his grasp. Worst case one arm moves around and the other moves to pull and tighten grasp. Best case, both arms extending forward tightens grasp, so using the working muscles to fill in for the lost functionality.
