How your brain controls your body

If you’re interested in the brain, this is worth watching. This scientist has done some experiments enabling a monkey to control a robotic arm to play a game. The research will be used to help paralysed patients walk again.

Designers might find it interesting for the design potential of the exoskeleton.

Another application for the research is playing Xbox games with your mind, not with a controller. We all know that’s the future! They’re found a way for monkeys to feel the difference between textures in a game using electrical signals. I wonder what the first mind-reading headgear for Xbox will look like?

‘Impossible is just the possible that someone has not put in enough effort to make it come true.’
