Brain-computer interfaces have been around for several years now. In most cases, they are used to help people who are no longer capable of communicating on their own. University of California scientists successfully unveiled a new type of brain-computer interface. The implant in question is capable of saying what people are thinking. As such, its potential consequences will undoubtedly spark some heated debates along the way.
Any sort of implant inserted in the human body will always be met with concern and scrutiny. Whether it is to facilitate day-to-day tasks or explore new boundaries, there are certain stigmas associated with body modifications. Especially if that modification affects a critical part of the human body, such as vital organs or even the brain. In recent years, the concept of brain-computer interfaces has received a lot of attention from researchers around the world.
