Publication/Creation DateFebruary 9 2016
DescriptionUniversity of Melbourne and Royal Melbourne Hospital neurologist Dr Tom Oxley and Vascular Bionics Laboratory biomedical engineer Dr Nick Opie have developed a brain-machine interface to manipulate control and movement of robots by the use of thought alone, in collaboration with engineers and surgeons from 16 academic departments at the University of Melbourne.
This article discusses the current reality and future of brain-computer interfaces (BCIs), "from telepathy to hands-free fighter jets". It predicts that "thought-powered exoskeletons and brain implants that can predict seizures or detect chemical and electrical changes are just the beginning".
