It sounds like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie. But scientists from Stanford University are making typing via telepathy a reality.
A new brain-computer interface which has been created by Stanford University is giving those with an inability to type using the outlandish-sounding tactic of telepathy!
The new technology allows those with injuries to their spines or limbs to type up to 39 characters per minute via brain control.
No physical input is required as the technology recognises brain waves and translates them into actions.
Jaimie Henderson, a professor of neurosurgery at Stanford, says that this technology is the latest in improving the lives of those with major spinal injuries.
“Our study’s success marks a major milestone on the road to improving quality of life for people with paralysis,” said Henderson.
The study was published recently in the journal eLife.
