Consider this headline: "Researcher controls colleague's motions in 1st human brain-to-brain interface." This. Happened. University of Washington nerds put an electrode-speckled cap on Rajesh Rao and attached it to a computer that was connected to the internet. Show More Summary
Back in April we brought you a device that researchers at Purdue University had developed to make it easier to read while running on a treadmill. But the infra-red goggles and tracking cameras that translated a runner's movements to the text they were reading was clunky, and no where near as easy to use as the new Run-n-Read clip-on sensor promises to be.
