Purdue University researchers have developed an electronic chip that can essentially read minds by reading severed nerve ending signals and transmitting them without using an external device or battery. The neural integrated chip uses a remotely powered system to wirelessly transmit the signal to a computer, providing support for patients with neural deficiencies and severed nerves. The tiny, flexible chip is so small it is about the size of a speck of dust. The team hopes to use the technology to further advance research in the field of neuro-prosthetics.
