Michio Kaku’s ‘Future of the Mind’

Source: The New York Times

In June of this year [2014], the World Cup in Brazil will begin not with a flashy musical number or a team of flying acrobats but with a simple scientific demonstration. A paralyzed teenager will make the ceremonial first kick. This] feat will be accomplished through an “exoskeleton” directly controlled by the teenager’s thoughts and read through a helmet-mounted EEG machine.

Head Games – NeuroGaming Conference 2014

At NeuroGaming 2013, former PCWorld editor Alex Wawro and I [Hayden Dingman] arm-wrestled each other using only our brains. While nothing quite that crazy happened at the 2014 sessions, I did shoot fireballs, control Infamous with my eyes, meet the world’s first “Personal Brainer,” chew some Think Gum, and even had my face scanned into the grid, Tron-style.

“Excuse me,” Ware says. “Would you like to throw trucks with your mind?”

The target’s face goes through a range of expressions, trying to formulate the appropriate response to the fantastical offer before settling on an uncertain reply.

“Um, suuuuuure…” says Natalia Veselova, who has come from Russia to attend the Game Developers Conference in March.

Restoring Speech through BCI and Speech Synthesizer

Could a person who is paralyzed and unable to speak, like physicist Stephen Hawking, use a brain implant to carry on a conversation? That’s the goal of an expanding research effort at U.S. universities, which over the last five years has proved that recording devices placed under the skull can capture brain activity associated with speaking.

Students Link Brains to operate Video Game

You know how Professor X wears that funny helmet to amplify his brainwaves whenever he uses Cerebro to find mutants in X Men? Of course you do. (And if not—go here.) Turns out, that isn’t just an improbable comic book plot device. Increasingly, researchers are taking a similar approach to transfer one person’s thoughts into another person’s brain.

Successful MIT Momentum

Eight teams of MIT undergraduates worked over the course of four weeks in January to develop an EMG-controlled hand and arm that could serve coffee, write an invitation, dial a rotary phone, serve food and set the table. The theme, as you might guess, was organizing a dinner party. Each team had a $500 budget to purchase extra EMG components or materials to build the robotic limb.
