Researchers Develop Means to Twitter Via Brain Interface

 - Apr 26, 2009
Researchers have developed a new way of Twittering using only the brain and a visual interface. The method is especially useful for those with spinal cord damage or other type of physically incapacitating disability.

While the communication technique will win no awards for speed, it is effective and transparent. A person with a disease such as ALS could communicate with someone through Twitter and no one would even know the person was disabled.

What makes this technology even more appealing is the fact that it lends itself more to use in the home than in the lab.

This is a great use of technology that non-trivializes something so many people take for granted.
