Thought Control Surgery- Brain Hacking to Come


I have written about the brain gate computer brain interface before.  The company has now announced its use by a patient with ALS. 

Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, Inc. Cyberkinetics) announced that Leigh R. Hochberg, M.D., Ph.D., Principal Investigator in the pilot trial of the BrainGate Neural Interface System (BrainGate), presented preliminary findings from the trial’s first participant with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or Lou Gehrig’s disease) in his presentation at the Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Atlanta

This tecnology is expanding.  For now the focus is on neurodegenerative illness and spinal cord injuries.  There is no doubt in my mind that this technology will be expanded to enhancement use and recreation in the future.  As I heard a DARPA doc say ” what if your daughter comes and says, Dady I want to be the fastest runner in the world, cut off my legs and give me bionics?”.  Do you doubt for a minute that if what I call  “brain-hacking” becomes availabe there will not be a line to plug-in?
