we make money not art: Monkey controls robotic arm with thoughts

more on the brain/machine interface:

we make money not art: Monkey controls robotic arm with thoughts:

"The arm was wired into the animal's brain and intercepted signals through electrodes attached to tiny probes that tap into the animal's neuronal pathways in the motor cortex.

The neurons' activity was fed through an algorithm that interpreted the activity in the monkey's brain as it tried to move its own arm, and transmitted the signals to the robotic arm."
