Disabled Patients Pilot Telepresence Robot w/ Their Thoughts!

Visiting other people is extremely difficult for those suffering from paralysis or limited mobility. But researchers headed by José del R. Millán at the Defitech Foundation Chair in Brain-Machine Interface (CNBI) have been working on a brain-machine approach to restore a sense of independence for disabled people. The idea is to control a robot remotely from home with one's thoughts.

For several weeks, 9 disabled people and 10 healthy people in Italy, Germany and Switzerland put on electrode-studded hats capable of analyzing their brain signals. Then, from their home country, they transmitted real-time instructions for the robot to move via the Internet. A wheeled robot with a video camera and screen in a laboratory at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland) was able to relay video as it moved while displaying the remote pilot's face. The pilot was able to interact with whoever the robot crossed paths with. Professor Millán says, "Each of the 9 subjects with disabilities managed to remotely control the robot with ease after less than 10 days of training." The tests revealed no difference in piloting ability between healthy and disabled subjects.

The technology developed by the researchers goes even further as the robot is able to avoid obstacles, even without being told to. The pilot can also take a break from indicating the direction the robot is to move. If it doesn't receive more indications, the robot will continue on the indicated path until it receives an order to stop. In this way, control over the robot is shared between the human and computer, allowing the pilot to rest while navigating.

These results bring to a close the European project called TOBI (Tools for Brain-Computer Interaction), which began in 2008.

_Fifteen years from now, a new virus sweeps the globe. 95% of those afflicted experience nothing worse than fever and headaches. Four percent suffer acute meningitis, creating the largest medical crisis in history. And one percent find themselves “locked in”—fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus.

One per cent doesn't seem like a lot. But in the United States, that's 1.7 million people “locked in”...including the President's wife and daughter.

Spurred by grief and the sheer magnitude of the suffering, America undertakes a massive scientific initiative. Nothing can restore the ability to control their own bodies to the locked in. But then two new technologies emerge. One is a virtual-reality environment, “The Agora,” in which the locked-in can interact with other humans, both locked-in and not. The other is the discovery that a few rare individuals have brains that are receptive to being controlled by others, meaning that from time to time, those who are locked in can “ride” these people and use their bodies as if they were their own.

This skill is quickly regulated, licensed, bonded, and controlled. Nothing can go wrong. Certainly nobody would be tempted to misuse it, for murder, for political power, or worse...._

Lock In
by John Scalzi 

Brilliant book which brings to life a world where this becomes the norm

"Moving to Canada" <-- LOL!

In addition to Canada, same-sex marriage has also been legal in Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Denmark, France, Iceland, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and Uruguay.

While not yet in effect, similar laws have recently passed in Ireland, Finland, and Slovenia as well.

When you're ready to come out if that closet. I'm sure there will be plenty of blokes to welcome you out. But I'm not going to be there. But I'll have a beer for you to celebrate the moment. I'm not into guys that way.

Selfie Sunday: Throwback to the Treasure Island Flea!

A mirror selfie with a couple of my out-of-town friends. This pic is from last summer at the Treasure Island Flea, a monthly flea market event at San Francisco's Treasure Island that supports local artists and entrepreneurs.

Treasure Island was just one of the many places we explored during their visit to SF.

Batkid Begins Official Trailer!

Batkid Begins takes us back to November 15, 2013, the day San Francisco transformed itself into Gotham City so that 5-year-old Miles Scott, who fought leukemia, could live a day like his favorite superhero Batman. [amzn.to/1fNPrv6]

The creators of this documentary say, "One child. One wish. Millions touched. Who would have thought a 5-year-old boy who fought leukemia would transform a city and a nation for a day? No one. Not his family. Not his friends. Not the thousands of volunteers who came from near and far to help make his wish come true. But it did... In all, the #SfBatKid and #BatKid hashtags reached more than 1.84 billion people on Twitter and Instagram. This wish and this little caped crusader resonated with so many people, including us, and we wanted to find out why."

Directed by Dana Nachman. In theaters June 26, 2015.
