Paralyzed Woman Controls Robotic Arm With Her Mind

(video link)

This woman had a stroke 15 years ago that left her paralyzed. She is a volunteer for the BrainGate2 clinical trial, a project in which sensors are implanted in the patient's brain, which turn neurological signals into software commands that control robotic hardware. In the video, she gets herself a drink, which is a big step in autonomy -as her smile shows. Read more about the project at Wired. Link -via Metafilter
