About this research and development project
Project: "Freeing ourselves from the constraints of the body by expanding our physical and perceptual capabilities".
Outline: If we can estimate people's intentions, we can create the ultimate CA that can be manipulated as we wish. In order to do so, we need not only internal brain activity, but also brain surface information and interaction information with others. By 2050, the ultimate BMI-CA will be able to operate as a person wishes.
