In this interview TechEmergence talks to Dr. Christoph Guger, founder of gTec, a company that focuses on creating devices and parts for the field of brain-machine interface. Guger shares with us the direction and progress of brain-machine interface, as well as explaining the concept of “embodiment,” where a person truly “feels” that a device controlled by their thoughts is a part of themselves, and extension of themselves. Where might these technologies make their jump into the mainstream? Listen to Christoph’s interview here.
