In the early 1980s Atari tried to make a new type of joystick that can be controlled by someone’s mind using electrodes attached to the scalp. That never seemed to work and they gave up on it.

Later on, in 2016 a neurochip implant gave a woman suffering from ALS to play video games with it. It shows potential in interfacing with the human brain with people who have a disease that paralyzes them.

It won’t be long before a neurochip can connect the brain with the spine with people who had a broken spine. It won’t be long before people with MS and MD are able to use Neurochips to boost the signal to their muscles and other parts of the body to function better.

The Age of the Cyborg has begun. Part Human and Part Machine and the Neurochip makes it possible.
