Miguel Nicolelis - A Monkey That Controls A Robot With Its Thoughts. No, ReallyStreaming Video - 2014
Can we use our brains to directly control machines - without requiring a body as the middleman? Miguel Nicolelis talks through an astonishing experiment, in which a clever monkey in the US learns to control a monkey avatar, and then a robot arm in Japan, purely with its thoughts. The research has big implications for quadraplegic people - and maybe for all of us. (Filmed at TEDMED 2012.)
