  • Neural Interfacing

    I've recently become inspired to research Neural Interfacing, but I'm having a hard time finding any valuable or insightful information. I'm currently a lowly undergrad studying Info. Systems, but have always had an interest in transhumanism, so I've been looking to see if theres a potential career in the subject. So far the most I have found is a company that seems to be a leader in commercializing cybernetic implants; the url is http://www.cyberkineticsinc.com/content/index.jsp.

    Does anyone know if there is any potential for a real career to be made in the field? Much research actually being applied? Any information, including else regarding the field would be appreciated.

    There is a guy out there that has done neural interfacing with his hand. He has implanted chips in his hand that control a robotic hand. I've seen it on the science channel as well as the news.

    Hope this helps.

    It's my understanding that Kevin is the real deal. He actually experiments on himself.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.

      I don't know about jobs available in neural interfacing but I have seen these sites/videos recently. I am really interested in this topic as well.

      Developed by Neurosky, it is headgear that will track your 'emotions' such as concentration on an object in a game.

      Here are some videos of its use though the testers' comments on the second video leave something to be desired:

      Brainloop is another brain interfacing project. Here is their website:
      http://www.aksioma.org/brainloop/press.html
      The website also has a clip of other projects at the convention some which relate to neural interfacing.
      And a demo video:

      The second post in this thread shows some books out there on the subject: http://www.imminst.org/forum/index.p...art=#entry6610

      I would love to see a diy tutorial on building the non-invasive brain readers but I think it will be a while before I can get my hopes up.

        "Brain/Computer Interface" is the relevant semantic anchorpoint

        Be sure to check out the Berlin BCI:

          That's what I've expected at the "Hack your Brain" talks at the past few Defcons, but I was sadly disappointed
