Chip Head

chip in the head to control computers

NYTimes reports that the FDA has given approval for a company (Cyberkinetics Inc) to implant a computer chip into the brains of 5 paralyzed people that will hopefully enable them to operate a computer by thought alone.

Maybe in 5-10 years we will all be controlling embedded processors in everything we use by thought alone.

Update Slashdot is reporting on this now.
