Greg Gage: How to control someone else's arm with your brain

I found their Neuroscience equipment for sale:

https://backyardbrains.com/products/

I have no idea if it will work on everyone or how well it will work. If you think about it, if you programmed a chip to play back these movements, you could get rid of paralysis and there was a recent story of someone getting a chip implanted in their brain.

"This is electrophysiology."

"We're going to bring on the neuro revolution".


The original Ted Talk is here which is the same as the Youtube video:

These products may be safe because anything that touches the body is at your own risk and has to be low voltage:

Remember that it only takes a D cell to stop a human heart so this is do it at your own risk.

That is a great video, I'll have to show my class this week sometime :)

As for being safe, I am sure they would be since they would just have some sort of very high sensitivity transducers which would pick up the signal, as for sending a signal, I am sure that would be very low power also. I remember experimenting with a piezo electric stove lighter where you would click it while touching different parts of your wrist to get your fingers to move :)

I'm wary of how people conduct electrical experiments. There is a story of a 15 year old kid dying because he tried making a youtube video with a jacob's ladder:

So while most people might use some common sense, common sense isn't always common.

Now that is a sad story.

I remember reading in silicon chip (an Australian electronics magazine) about building a jacobs ladder but you really do need to have loads of warnings for that sort of a project. I remember pulling apart a CRT monitor over 20 years ago and got a big zap! (I thought i was safe because it wasn't plugged in...)
