A monkey controls a robot w/ his brain! Need I say more? I wonder what the monkey would do if they hooked him up to a King Kong robot…
In a first-of-its-kind experiment, the brain activity of a monkey has been used to control the real-time walking patterns of a robot halfway around the world, according to researchers at Duke University Medical Center.
The Duke team is working with the Computational Brain Project of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) on technology they hope will one day help those with paralysis regain the ability to walk.
It shouldn’t be too long before they replace the monkey with humans huh?
Anyone up to be the first guinea-monkey?
