ARM is developing brain-implantable microchips
Semiconductor manufacturer ARM has announced it is developing bidirectional brain-computer interfaces. The chip maker has partnered with the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington to develop the implants. The implants are aimed at solving disorders like Parkinson’s disease, spinal injuries, and paralysis.
The implants will be bidirectional, allowing users to send commands through the interface and receive sensory information.
ARM said its long-term goal is to create neurotechnology that will help the body heal, feel, and move.
