The Google Glass App Store is coming in 2014 | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
Marketing Land reported that Google Glass users are going to have to hold out another calendar year to get an app store. I guess that means the rest of us on the wait list won’t be too out of the loop when we can get our hands (read: head) on a pair.

Landmark moment for brain-controlled Tech

Landmark moment for brain-controlled Tech | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
|21 February 2017|

USA

In a major milestone Stanford researchers have shown people with paralysis type via direct brain control at the highest speeds and accuracy levels ever recorded

One or two baby-aspirin-sized electrode arrays were placed in the brains of three participants with severe limb weaknes to record signals from the motor cortex, a region controlling muscle movement. These signals were transmitted to a computer via a cable and translated by algorithms into point-and-click commands guiding a cursor to characters on an onscreen keyboard.

Each participant, after minimal training, mastered the technique sufficiently to outperform the results of any previous test of brain-computer interfaces, or BCIs, for enhancing communication by people with similarly impaired movement. Notably, the study participants achieved these typing rates without the use of automatic word-completion assistance common in electronic keyboarding applications nowadays, which likely would have boosted their performance.

One participant, Dennis Degray of Menlo Park, California, was able to type 39 correct characters per minute, equivalent to about eight words per minute.

This point-and-click approach could be applied to a variety of computing devices, including smartphones and tablets, without substantial modifications, the Stanford researchers said.

Our study's success marks a major milestone on the road to improving quality of life for people with paralysis, said Jaimie Henderson, MD, professor of neurosurgery, who performed two of the three device-implantation procedures. The third took place at Massachusetts General Hospital.

Henderson and Krishna Shenoy, PhD, professor of electrical engineering, are co-senior authors of the study, which will be published online today in eLife. The lead authors are former postdoctoral scholar Chethan Pandarinath, PhD, and postdoctoral scholar Paul Nuyujukian, MD, PhD, both of whom spent well over two years working full time on the project at Stanford.

This study reports the highest speed and accuracy, by a factor of three, over what's been shown before, said Shenoy, a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator who's been pursuing BCI development for 15 years and working with Henderson since 2009. We're approaching the speed at which you can type text on your cellphone.

German grocer Lidl could pull this off if it markets itself correctly. Supermarkets are just one of several retail businesses being changed by digital technology and improved management procedures.

This is incredible especially for those that have this disease and are not able to speak. Being able to communicate with your loved ones is so important. Now that microsoft has invented this app to allow those with the disease to move their eyes what will be the next greatest invention for those that can not speak? Will there be more than just using the smart phone or will there be other devices that can read their eye signals and tell us what they are trying to communicate.

A great idea that will have difficulty once it confronts the limited resources of the rf (radio frequency) spectrum.  To fully implement this ambitious plan,  other users of the rf spectrum may have to surrender some of their prized frequencies in the name of commerce.  Expect stiff resistance from the military, federal government, and broadcast media.
