A new neural implant allows those who are paralyzed to type by just thinking of movement similar to moving your finger on a touchpad. At this point the system is only capable of about six words per minute but that’s a pretty good start considering what is being accomplished. This could be a giant leap forward from a system like Steven Hawking uses. It relies on a sensor in his cheek to stop a scrolling cursor on the desired character. This new system, however, would essentially allow the user to point with their mind.
