Flexible Transistors

Full Story - http://www2.technologyreview.com/news/400877/flexible-transistors/ MIT Review - 10 Breakthrough Technologies - 2001 The implementation of pervasive computing-the spread of digital information throughout society–will require electronics capable of bringing information technology off the desktop and out into the world. To digitize newspapers, product labels and clothing, integrated circuits must be cheap and flexible-a tough combination for today’s silicon technology. Even the c...

Brain-Machine Interface

Full Story - http://www2.technologyreview.com/news/400879/brain-machine-interface/ MIT Review - 10 Breakthrough Technologies - 2001 Nicolelis terms such systems “hybrid brain-machine interfaces” or HBMIs. Recently, working with the Laboratory for Human and Machine Haptics at MIT, he scored an important first on the HBMI front, sending signals from individual neurons in Belle’s brain to a robot, which used the data to mimic the monkey’s arm movements in real time. Nicolelis predicts that...

A Brain-Computer Interface That Works Wirelessly

Full Story - MIT Technology Review - Antonio Regalado on January 14, 2015 Researchers at Brown University and Blackrock Microsystems early in 2015, commercialized a wireless device that can be attached to a person’s skull and transmit via radio thought commands collected from a brain implant.  The device was developed by a consortium, called BrainGate, which is based at Brown and was among the first to place implants in the brains of paralyzed people and show that electrical signals emitted b...
