Neuromotor Prosthesis Brainwave Sensor

A science team in Massachusetts has developed a brain sensor called a Neuromotor Prosthesis, which has allowed a paralyzed man to open email, play computer games and manipulate a prosthetic hand, simply by using his mind.

According to the article on BBC Mathew Nagle, the man on whom the device was tested, has been paralyzed from the neck down since a knife attack in 2001.  In the tests, he was able to perform a number of activities using mind control to a computer interface.
