Synchrony, an endovascular brain-computer interface (BCI) company, today announced the first human BCI implant in the United States.
“Synchron’s flagship technology, the Stentrode, is an endovascular brain implant designed to enable patients to wirelessly control digital devices through thought and improve functional independence. Synchron’s foundational technology, a motor neuroprosthesis (MNP), or motor BCI, is implanted via the jugular vein using neurointerventional techniques commonly used to treat stroke, and does not require drilling into the skull or open-brain surgery. The system is designed for patients suffering from paralysis as a result of a range of conditions. It is designed to be user friendly and dependable for patients to use autonomously.”
It’s all fun and games until it’s weaponized imo.
