Fucking awesome. I love science.
Oh wow, that's really fucking impressive.
Nice! A bit late to help someone close to me, but still great :D
Well, kinda not really. I remember finding a paper about using an EEG cap on someone with an amputated limb when I was researching this earlier this year, might be able to get it again. So it really depends on your definition of able-bodied because while there is a technical difference, it's not really much more significant.
How is that even possible?
this one from Iran of all places, in 2002. Says it was done on someone with with a severe physical disability but the paper doesn't appear to say what it was exactly so fuck Iranian scientists for writing shitty papers.
I was going to do a project on it this year but it fell through because my supervisor is going to Japan later. EEG BCIs, good stuff.
Surrogates, very very soon. Is there any info on how they did this?
Nevermind, cheers, Devodiere!
They had one where you could control a cursor on a screen or something.
You have to train it, you can't just think "Crush tiny person" and your robot arm just instantly knows to grab a small person and start crushing.
It is more of a think "left" and when you do that they can figure out what signals fire and all that jazz and eventually when those signals are transmitted the computer can say, "That was left!"
Next: brain control for games please.
Controlling a browser with your brain. Despite being complex as fuck, P300 is awesome. Shame I couldn't work on it but most studies have super expensive gold-plated electrodes whereas I only had a $50 headset, I probably would've just gotten garbage.
I fucking love cybernetics.
Oh fuck, next thing we know Stephen Hawkings will control a robot army.
Not that this isn't fascinating and impressive, but this is old news! Weird to think it, but we've been reading stories like this for years now. Bioelectric interfacing is evolving pretty rapidly, actually.
Here's another one:
wow, no deus ex jokes yet?
We need augmented physical bodies now and upload our soul to the vast net
