Breakthrough Technological Innovation
A team of engineers from Carnegie Mellon and University of Minnesota have invented a breakthrough piece of technology. A non-invasive, brain-computer interface that works to the level that human thoughts control sophisticated robotic arm functions on the computer. The system is an EEG external cap on the person's head and doesn't require any surgery to place a brain implant in the human. This is a first.
