How far would you go to modify yourself using the latest medical technology?

"IF a brain implant were safe and available and allowed you to operate your iPad or car using only thought, would you want one? What about an embedded device that gently bathed your brain in electrons and boosted memory and attention? Would you order one for your children?"

BrainGate - BrainGate System

BrainGate - BrainGate System | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

A long-term goal of the BrainGate research team is to create a system that, quite literally, turns thought into action – and is useful to people with neurologic disease or injury, or limb loss. Currently, the system consists of a “sensor” (a device implanted in the brain that records signals directly related to imagined limb movement); a “decoder” (a set of computers and embedded software that turns the brain signals into a useful command for an external device); and, the external device – which could be a standard computer desktop or other communication device, a powered wheelchair, a prosthetic or robotic limb, or, in the future, a functional electrical stimulation device that can move paralyzed limbs directly.

Future brain implants could run on brain fuel

Future brain implants could run on brain fuel | Cognitive Enhancement Technologies | Scoop.it

Research at MIT has produced a fuel cell that could power small neural implants with the same source of energy as the brain itself: glucose...
