Default 'BrainGate' Allows Your Brain to Control Your PC

Massachusetts based Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, has developed a new product called 'BrainGate'. BrainGate, once implanted within the human brain, will give the person the ability to surf the web, operate TV remotes and telephones, simply by "thinking it". "We can take someone's thought and put it on a screen," said Tim Surgeon, chief executive of Cyberkinetics Neurotechnology Systems, manufacturer of the device, which is called BrainGate Neural Interface System.

A trial test of BrainGate has already been tested on person individual and the and the Food and Drug Administration has given Cyberkinetics permission to test the technology on four other quadriplegics.




To install the BrainGate, surgeons must drill a hole in the patients head and implant a computer chip on the surface of the brain area that is responsible for moving arms and hands.

Does this mean we'll soon see firewall implants, to keep crackers out of our brains? What about if a cracker obtained access to the computer that our brain is linked to, what sort of damage could be caused?
