Stephen Hawking, a British theoretical physicist, has been unable to speak, suffering from motor neurone disease, for long 30 years.
According to a report of the Daily Mail, the device, iBrain developed by Philip Low, a professor at the Standford university , will pick up brain waves and communicate them via computer.
“We’d like to find a way to bypass his body, pretty much hack his brain. This is very exciting for us because it allows us to have a window into the brain,” said Professor Low. “We’re building technology that will allow humanity to have access to the human brain for the first time,” he continued.
“The emergence of such biomarkers opens the possibility to link intended movements to a library of words and convert them into speech, thus providing motor neurone sufferers with communication tools more dependent on the brain than on the body,” added Professor Low.
