Researchers at Wits University in Johannesburg, South Africa recently scaled a new frontier in the field of biomedical engineering as they developed a direct link between a human brain and the Internet for the first time ever.

The project, named the “Brainternet,” involves an EEG device, which relays a user’s’ brainwave signals to a computer where an application shows brain activity in real time while enabling a limited degree of interactivity, writes Futurism.

“Brainternet” aims to unravel the mysteries related to the working of human brains and could provide valuable data for breakthroughs in machine learning and human-brain interfaces, notes Medical Express.
