Neuroprosthetics and Additive Micromanufacturing – Enabling a Cyborg Future?

October 29, 2020


However, researchers at any company or institution involved in BCIs/BMIs are happy to divulge details of an altogether different reality – one opposed to the dystopian cyborg future that is so often depicted by Hollywood.

Simply defined as the pairing of neuroscience with biomedical engineering, neuroprosthetics involves the use of external computing power to either replace or assist human functionality. Whilst neural control of robotic limbs has existed since 2008, new developments, with the advanced amalgamation of human-AI components, have recently come into being.
