QUARAPLEGIC LEARNS TO CONTROL ARM WITH NURO INTERFACE

Interesting story from Geeks Are Sexy today:  Thanks to a wi-fi brain implant and with the help of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, Jan Scheuermann can control a complex robotic arm to complete certain basic tasks such as picking up objects and move them around. 

My 15-year-old Aidan just finished  a science fair project where he used a nuro interface to control a AR Drone with his mind. Implants are the next stage.

The technology isn’t perfect yet: Scheuermann sometimes fails to grab things that are presented to her and hasn’t succeeded yet in certain tasks such as pouring water from one glass into another.
