Incridible new technology
Here is something from the news. One day the same technology will power the turn-indicators and replace the remote of our ICE?
Paralyzed from the neck down, but connected to a computer by a wire implanted into the top of his brain, Matthew Nagle had only to imagine that his arm was moving a cursor across the computer screen -- and the cursor obeyed...
Similarly, he could use his thoughts to cause a rubber prosthetic hand to open and close, or to manipulate a robot arm to grab a piece of candy and drop it on command. He could change the channels and control the volume of a television set...
Researchers hope they will one day be able to help paralyzed people regain control of their limbs using techniques that seem ripped from the reel of a science fiction movie.
