The computer does not even need to be modified to make it work.

Technological advances still open new doors. Especially for disabled people, much happens now that can make a difference in everyday life.

The computer does not even need to be modified to make it work.

Technological advances still open new doors. Especially for disabled people, much happens now that can make a difference in everyday life.

Tasks that were previously impossible to implement are suddenly possible thanks to technology.

A study in the PLOS One magazine deals with a brain implant called BrainGate2. Using this implant, three people who were lame from the neck and down could perform a variety of tasks on a tablet. Both writing, streaming and browsing on the internet were again possible for these people.

The implant uses signals from the brain and translates them to a motion on the screen. The only person (s) need to do is use the intention of moving something, that is, thinking power.

The signals were then sent to a virtual mouse that was wirelessly connected to the tablet.

Only by means of the intention, the subjects could perform a variety of digital tasks. One of them, for example, managed to order food from the net and play a digital piano.

- The tablet became very natural to me, very intuitively, the woman who participated in the experiment stated to the researchers when she was asked about her experience.

The most interesting thing about the study is that the researchers did not use a custom-built, modified machine. They used a completely ordinary tablet without any shortcuts or accessibility tools.
