One of the most exciting developments in medicine and science is the possibility for humans to be able to control computers with their minds. In fact, it’s no longer just a possibility, it is actually being done. The NY Times recently had an article about an armless man who can control a pair of robotic, prosthetic arms via nerve endings in the muscle groups that had once controlled his natural limbs.
It was only four years ago that I first wrote about brain-computer interfaces. It is fascinating to watch how this technology is advancing. And it certainly seems to be advancing quickly. The cyborgs will soon be among us.
