Monkey that Controls a Robot With Its Thoughts
A Monkey that Controls a Robot With Its Thoughts - Miguel Nicolelis

Miguel Nicolelis talks through an astonishing experiment, in which a clever monkey in the US learns to control a monkey avatar, and then a robot arm in Japan, purely with its thoughts. The research has big implications for quadraplegic people – and maybe for all of us.
