Human Machine Symbioses

MIT has just announced the establishment of a new research centre, the Lisa Yang Centre for Bionics,  focussing on the fusion of  human body and advanced technology aiming at overcoming disabilities. This includes use of exoskeletons and brain computer interfaces. The centre start with an initial funding of 24 M$ …

Neurograins: a wireless network ON your brain

A team of researchers from Brown, Baylor University, University of California at San Diego and Qualcomm has been working in the past four years on a new approach to interface with the brain. So far BCIs make use of electrodes (implanted, or positioned inside/outside the skull) that can sense electrical …

Sono-Optogenetcs for Brain Computer Interface

A new technology, sono-optogenetics, is being experimented to support brain-computer interfaces -BCI. BCI aims at capturing the brain activity, convert it into bits and provide these bits to a computer for analysing what is going on, eventually what you are thinking.  Let’s clarify that we are still very – very …

Walking again with an exoskeleton

Millions of people have lower-limb paralyses limiting their movement possibility and affecting the life of their families (in addition to limiting their possibility to find a job). The Toyota Mobility Foundation set up a 4 million $ challenge in 2017 to come up with effective devices that could overcome this …

The Internet of Senses

Ericsson has published a short report (sort of commercial for 5G) on “Hot consumer trends in 2030“. Let me say, transparently, that I would place that more in the realm of imagination than in the one of science, closer to fake news than to news (even the graphics used have …

“Brain” controlled robotic arms

The quest towards Brain Computer Interfaces continues. At John Hopkins University researchers have implanted six electrodes in the brain, 3 in each hemisphere, of a paraplegic patient. The electrodes captures the electrical activity of the brain and send the data via an external gateway (see photo) to a computer for …
