The paralyzed man was able to write a message on the social network “by the power of thought”



A special chip was developed by the Synchron company. He was implanted into the brain of a paralyzed Philip O’Keefe. Thanks to the device, he was for the first time able to write a message “with the power of thought.” The man posted it on Twitter. Wrote: “Hello world! Short tweet. Monumental progress ”. Later, he added, “I hope I am paving the way for people to tweet with their minds.”

Due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the man lost a significant part of his motor functions. But the chip allows him to return to social life. He explained that now he just thinks about where on the computer he wants to click. This allows him to send email, shop and write messages.
