"A paralysed man in the US has become the first person to benefit from a brain chip that reads his mind. Matthew Nagle, 25, was left paralysed from the neck down and confined to a wheelchair after a knife attack in 2001.

. . . .pioneering surgery at New England Sinai Hospital, Massachusetts, last summer means he can now control everyday objects by thought alone.

The brain chip reads his mind and sends the thoughts to a computer to decipher.

He can think his TV on and off, change channels and alter the volume thanks to the technology and software linked to devices in his home.
. . . ."
(The BBC News)

It sounds so simple in their report. But technology and software like that cannot be very simple.
