Can paralyzed walk in the future? Yes, more than 20000 quadriplegics around the world will get a BCI, a Brain Computer Interface. It will give them the ability to control their environment, from driving their own electric wheel chair outside their house to making their own dinner.

The BCI will consist of an internal sensor to detect brain cell activity and external processions that convert these brain signals into a computer mediated output under the person’s own control. The sensor is implanted on the surface of the area of the brain responsible for the movement, the motor cortex and is then wireless connected to the computer. The patient will have the ability to move a cursor on the screen and play a simple computer game.
