Noninvasive brain implant could someday translate thoughts into movement

BioBolt is implanted in the skull beneath the skin and the film of microcircuits sits on the brain.

brain implant uses the body's skin like a conductor to wirelessly transmit the brain's neural signals to control a computer, and may eventually be used to reactivate paralyzed limbs. technology is years away.

Currently, the skull must remain open while neural implants are in the head, which makes using them in a patient's daily life unrealistic

BioBolt does not penetrate the cortex and is completely covered by the skin to greatly reduce risk of infection
