Movies, commonplace where we have seen technology in action which even still don’t exist, are real world inspiration for technology growth. We have seen in high defs, usually an antagonist imagines or simply thinks about a piece of technology that would let him control the whole chunk of mass destructer apparatus. Controlling machine by thinking is possible now, maybe since long, and the logical reasoning behind it is so proof worthy; credos to our super hero scientists.
By transforming thought into action, a brain-machine interface could let people control devices (specially targeted for differently able ones to control devices like wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, and even computers.) It is possible to envision truly remarkable things, like brain implants that would allow people to augment their senor, motor, and cognitive abilities. ~ Jose M Carmena, IEEE Spectrum
Here is a visual infographics from “Becoming Bionic” published originally in 2012 March edition of the IEEE Spectrum magazine, and let’s you know how to connect or link up your brain to a machine.
