Brain hacking, it’s time to protect our mind from hackers ~ h+

Brain hacking, it’s time to protect our mind from hackers ~ h+ | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

by Pierluigi Paganini


"So, brain hacking is reality! Hackers soon could be able to extract sensitive data from a human brain with high reliability. Moving forward we can imagine malware able to compromise our brain by capturing the electric impulses generated by our brains.What will be the next step? What could be the effect of an even more malicious attack on the human mind?"

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface

Brown University creates first wireless, implanted brain-computer interface | :: The 4th Era :: | Scoop.it

Brown’s wireless BCI, fashioned out of hermetically sealed titanium, looks a lot like a pacemaker. Inside there’s a li-ion battery, an inductive (wireless) charging loop, a chip that digitizes the signals from your brain, and an antenna for transmitting those neural spikes to a nearby computer. The BCI is connected to a small chip with 100 electrodes protruding from it, which, in this study, was embedded in the somatosensory cortex or motor cortex. These 100 electrodes produce a lot of data, which the BCI transmits at 24Mbps over the 3.2 and 3.8GHz bands to a receiver that is one meter away. The BCI’s battery takes two hours to charge via wireless inductive charging, and then has enough juice to last for six hours of use.
