  • How does it work?Our brains are filled with neurons and nerves that are connected together. Everytme we think, move, feel or remember something, our neurons are at work. And this is carried out by small electric signals that are transmitted from neutron to neutron. The electrode in the brain then can pick up the signals and is transmitted to a computer and you can control things. This electrode can either be implanted in our brain, or attached to the scalp.
  • GamingPerhaps, we can become avatars in the future, we can enter another dimension and control everything with our thoughts.However, more importantly, it will be able to allow severly disabled people to function independently. This would represent a revolutionary improvement in quality of life.
