Hi all


So it seems we shall be able to move things with our minds, whilst also being on the go in the foreseeable future.. Science never ceases to amaze. However, I dont think I would having one of implanted in my head.. As my partner once said to me; we will soon be needing firewalls for our brains and bodies.. Looks like he was right..!




The wireless BCIs have been implanted in pigs and monkeys for over 13 months without issue, and human subjects are next.



We’ve covered BCIs extensively here on ExtremeTech, but historically they’ve been bulky and tethered to a computer. A tether limits the mobility of the patient, and also the real-world testing that can be performed by the researchers. Brown’s wireless BCI allows the subject to move freely, dramatically increasing the quantity and quality of data that can be gathered


This one is getting the researchers at Brown excited as it seems to only require a little power at just 100 milliwatts..

So peeps of ATS if/when this does makes its debut to the world, will you be purchasing one...?

It looks more like a hat than an implant, we should wait. Remember the old brick cellphones?

plus, if it runs on Windows, forget it!

Who would want an Win OS in their brain. We would be crashing all the time with hardware compatibility issues and need security patches daily..

thump and bump...

Love the idea and potential of implants....

That said, I think I will wait for 4th generation before considering implants.

But oh yeah..I am certainly waiting for bionic eyes and memory expansion.

I think this is a wonderful advancement that will increase quality of life for many people, especially the physically disabled yet mentally active folks.

People with no arms could potentially have fully controllable bionic arms!

By no means is this product some gizmo accessory to show off how much more geek you are at the nearest coffee shop. It's a quality of life advancement for people that do not have normal physical function.

Granted, in the future, another few decades at least, we may very well advance similar products to the point where they become gizmo accessories that enhance our abilities, but, temporary more wearable products will likely be on that forefront before implants.

I am all for using technology like this! I actually think that technology and human evolution are intertwined, but that is another topic...

Just wanted to add an article that I read in 2600 back in 2010. It is about a guy that got implants to record what he spoke, but the implant was Chinese and was sending all this data back! It was an interesting read. I found it reposted on a blog here.

I am going to take this opportunity to make people aware of some similar technology. I cannot say much but their is a ton of information about this technology. This video really dose no justice. This video makes it seem as if its speculation by holding back information, although they did track down the inventor of the technology. Keep in mind that the inventor say's this technology is being used on all of us, witch is why I am only presenting this video. This video introduced me to this sinister topic. Their is tons of credible information including a court case witch was won in 2009. I will leave the rest up to you.



At the moment its not safe to expose the public to computer implants. Not until criminal aspects of our society are truly taken care of. It will only create a new battle filed. Sure tons of advancement will come from it but more control will be the result. Who will control this technology? I think a good example of how it would go down is in the video above.
