A while back I wrote a little piece on human machine interfaces and a number bits of research that are on going in progressing the way we connect to our machines. There is a bloke who has taken this to the next level by getting his headphones built into his ears and neck.
He went as far to find a body modification artist to do the procedure because no doctor or plastic surgeon would touch him with a barge pole.
This is either real commitment to your music or a real hate of those awful Apple earbuds. You decide.
It recently occurred to me while have a quite involved and slightly drunken conversation in the pub with Mike that science should really be getting around to making this happen. There are not enough research papers on the web about hard-wiring the Internet straight into our brains.
This was what Google was saying this about 3 years ago, but there has not been a great deal of articles or even decent discussion about this on the internet since.
This research on here is clearly the start of it, but why is it being done only for the disabled?
