The only thing better than something cool like the BrainGate Neural Interface is something even cooler Betterhumans >(Thinking Cap Lets Users Move). After reading about the first experiment, I went to the Internet, looking, frankly, for investor information about the company. While they may be a good investment, depending on their strategy and plans for the future, the second article points out that their 'new stuff' is already 'old hat' [pardon the pun]. An invasive brain implant would certainly be trumped by a 'brain wave hat'. This is some cool stuff, and along with this article about robotic limbs I first heard about from Mike's List, I would have to say that Christopher Reeve might certainly have been right about the chance of parapalegics to one day walk again.
