Mind Control

Clinical trials of the Braingate System by Cyberkinetics to help patients with "locked-in syndrome" secondary to stroke. Implanting a small sensor on the brain, patients are able to drive outputs by thought alone. Stroke patients with intact brain function will be able to control cursor movements with their brain only -- to control a computer with their mind.

Cyberkinetic founder John Donoghue was recognized by Popular Mechanics Magazine's 1st Annual Breakthrough Awards ceremony based on the system's potential to improve the lives of motor-impaired people.
