A new and emerging technology is paving the way for a new brain chip implant that is so microscopic, you wouldn’t even know if you had been implanted. The technology would effectively make you half-human, half-computer.
From Natural News :
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley (UCB), have come up with a concept they’ve dubbed “neural dust” that they say can be implanted into people’s brains for data collection purposes. And the technology is reportedly so small that humans wouldn’t even know it was inside their heads.
Using a special wire apparatus, the neural dust can be “dipped” into a person’s cerebral cortex, report scientists, where it would remain embedded indefinitely. And since it’s powered by special piezoelectric materials, this dust wouldn’t require a recharge, which means once it’s there, it’s there for good.
According to reports, this neural dust contains a complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) that allows it to monitor and track a person’s brain activity. After gathering this data, the dust then transmits it to a special transmitter installed on a person’s scalp.
Here’s how The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) describes the technology:
“Thousands of biologically neutral microsensors, on the order of one-tenth of a millimeter (approximately the thickness of a human hair), would convert electrical signals into ultrasound that could be read outside the brain.”
