Yahoo! News – Computers Obeying Brain Signals: “By MALCOLM RITTER, AP Science Writer

ALBANY, N.Y. – Researchers and volunteers around the world are taking early steps toward a complex but straightforward technological goal: to use electrical signals from the brain as instructions to computers and other machines, allowing paralyzed people to communicate, move around and control their environment literally without moving a muscle.”

Very interesting article. I’ve tried something like that and it was quite the experience. We are getting closer and closer to science fiction here. Soon we’ll have the powered battle armor from Starship Troopers and direct neural links to control our vehicles. And best of all, people whose bodies won’t let them communicate the way most of us can will be able to.
