Kid plays Atari 2600 game by thought alone!

Witness the Awesome:

The teenager had a grid atophis brain to record brain surface signals, a brain-machine interfacetechnique that uses electrocorticographic (ECoG) activity - data takeninvasively right from the brain surface. It is an alternative to afrequently used technique to study humans calledelectroencephalographic activity (EEG) - data taken non-invasively byelectrodes outside the brain on the scalp. Engineers programmed theAtari software to interface with the brain-machine interface system.


Seriously....I can't think of anything more bitchin' than playing Space Invaders via a Direct Neural Interface. Talk about the past and the future colliding!
