You might have heard about the BrainGate technology, which enables paralyzed people or people with physical disabilities, to steer their wheelchair with just thinking about it, and not even a blink of an eye’s mechanical action. The chip inserted into their neural system transmits the signals produced by their brain activity, to a computer, and the computer will interpret the signals into pre-defined commands and sends them to the electrical wheelchair. Yep, you think about going which direction, and you go.

check out the video here.

I think the future of interaction will not be much dependant on mechanical movements, but on the decision making mechanism in our brains. And I think it would be feasible, as we are moving forward in the fields of micro-, nano-, bio- and techno- logy.
