Caltech scientists have developed a way to create a brain implantable controller, which they currently can place in simian brains. “So what??” I hear you say. “We’ve had implantable brain interfaces for a while.” Yes, yes grasshopper, but this one is really tiny, and can adjust itself to get the best signal after it’s implanted.

They’ve figured out the mechanics, they’re just waiting for the software. How cool is that?
