The interface would serve as a translator, converting between the electrochemical language used by neurons in the brain and the ones and zeros that constitute the language of information technology.
The goal is to achieve this communications link in a biocompatible device no larger than one cubic centimeter in size…
Sounds like a super fun addition to the coming smart grid.’
