This is soo cool…
Using an implanted neural detector and decoder; paralysed volunteers are able to send emails to their friends, play music on youtube and buy products online. Coupled with auto-correct the typing speed increased with practice.
And as a side effect, it’s possible that neuroplasticity may even be sufficient to help actual movement return in some cases.
In the future it’s likely that such detectors and decoders may become completely external.
The feeling of freedom given to these people is priceless.
Great use of technology!
If you watch the short video near the end you will see one lady typing. Really cool.
