  1. Very interersting article Harshvir!

    I wonder what the real world applications could be for such technologies? Could the use of brain waves help people that are paralyzed regain movement in their limbs? This would be amazing for those people and their families.

    What an exciting world of possibilities. In addition to helping those with limited mobility, can you think of any other real world applications of this technology?

  2. I think this will really benefit paralyzed and injured people allowing them to move computerized limbs. The limbs can consist a computer that analyzes brain waves and moves the fake limb accordingly.
