Advancement of Brainspray Capture Techniques
Every couple of years I revisit the advancement of brainspray capture techniques – technology that allows people to direct movement or thoughts with only brain activity. The progress in the past two years has been impressive.
There are new cutting-edge brain sensor and management technologies, like the astrocyte stimulators and neurograins, and then there are brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) that you can buy online. People are overcoming severe disabilities with BCIs and the military may use them for multiple functions. In short, brain-reading equipment is already here and finding new uses.
Implementation of BCIs was attempted as early as 1973, when a Dr. Vidal published his study of an EEG-based system. The industry publication Frontiers in Systems Neuroscience notes that recent research application of BCI technology has involved such diverse applications as brain fingerprinting for lie detection, detecting drowsiness for improving human working performances,…
