A science fiction future may became reality thanks to military research. Ideas that were deemed outlandish just a few years ago are serious projects today, and who knows what ideas may go to the research level tomorrow. Some, of course, will make our military more effective in combat, which we hope won’t be necessary. other projects are aimed at serving those who have already served, like next generation prosthetic limbs and brain implants.
3. Brain Implants to Restore Memory
Another biomedical project being worked on by DARPA is an implant that can help restore memories of soldiers who have suffered brain injuries. The device would be placed into the brain and send small electrical jolts to stimulate memory formation. It would also help recall memories in individuals with traumatic brain damage. This technology will be transformative for soldiers, but can also help countless civilians who have memory loss due to injury.
