  • Beyond Fitbit: ‘Neural dust’ puts invisible cyborg tech deep inside you
  • Finally we are moving beyond “Jetsons” tech.
  • New, tiny sensors could create superpowerful fitness trackers, move prosthetics forward and lead to treatments for conditions like epilepsy.
  • Using even smaller motes of neural dust could allow the wireless sensors to be permanently installed and sealed in the skull, reducing infection and the unwanted movement that can come with electrodes.
  • Neural-dust implants have successfully been implanted in the muscles and nerves of rats and the researchers hope to create even smaller sensors that could be used in the brain.
