Monkey controls robotic arm using brain signals sent over Internet

Monkeys in North Carolina have remotely operated a robotic arm 600 miles away in MIT’s Touch Lab — using their brain signals. The feat is based on a neural-recording system reported in the November 16 issue of Nature. In that system, tiny electrodes implanted in the animals’ brains detected their brain signals as they controlled a robot arm to reach for a piece of food.
