On the Horizon - Neurological Rewiring and Brain Wave Translation

As Siemens writes of creating networks and creating connections. We are on the cusp of crossing the barriers of physiology to interact with technology. Three technologies in example:
  1. For some time, we have had devices that could interface with the human optic nerve to provide some limited sight to those who have lost their vision.
  2. Now scientists have been able to rewire severed nerves in monkeys to enable them to control extremities that were rendered ineffective.
  3. On the marketplace now is the human brain wave sensor that can be interfaced with video games. ABC Report. Stanford Emotiv EPOC.
