A Paralyzed man sends a tweet using only his mind after a microchip is installed in his brain

A paralyzed man has become the first person to tweet a message to the world using only direct thought.

In the “first direct-thought tweet,” the patient said “Hello World”.

The feat was pulled off by Philip O’Keefe – a motor neuron disease patient – using a microchip implant that picks up his brain signals.

It’s been described as the “first direct-thought tweet” after Mr. O’Keefe said said “Hello World” using the brain implant.

Synchron, a brain-computer interface company, announced a Twitter takeover by Philip O’Keefe on December 23rd.

Brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) acquire brain signals, analyze them, and translate them into commands that are relayed to output devices that carry out desired actions, according to NCBI.

Here is a direct link to the tweet.
