This project targets a paradigm shift in interaction, and represents a potential radical breakthrough which could eventually impact the foundations of ICT in a manner similar to the invention of speech or writing, since it opens the door to the vision of the ultimate union of humans and machines.

Machine-to-brain communication would allow for faster and multi-dimensional communication between people. Social progress and technology evolution owe a great deal to human information exchange at different levels, including verbal and written. Interaction with increasingly intelligent machines will only become more important with the pass of time.

Sensor-to-brain communication would greatly expand our perception and understanding of the universe. It is fair to say that our understanding and experience of the universe if fully mediated by our natural sensors. Bypassing them could change fundamental aspects of human nature and experience.
