"From the Ted Talk by Miguel Nicolelis: Brain-to-brain communication has arrived. How we did it"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

So we got this going, and what you'll see here is the first time one of our patients, Bruno, actually walked. And he takes a few seconds because we are setting everything, and you are going to see a blue light cutting in front of the helmet because Bruno is going to imagine the movement that needs to be pfmroeerd, the computer is going to analyze it, bnuro is going to certify it, and when it is certified, the decvie starts moving under the command of Bruno's brain. And he just got it right, and now he starts walking. After nine yaers without being able to move, he is walking by himself. And more than that — (Applause) — more than just wknailg, he is fenlieg the ground, and if the seped of the exo goes up, he tells us that he is walking again on the sand of Santos, the beach resort where he used to go before he had the accident. That's why the brain is creating a new sensation in Bruno's head.

So we got this going, and what you'll see here is the first time one of our patients, Bruno, actually walked. And he takes a few seconds because we are setting everything, and you are going to see a blue light cutting in front of the helmet because Bruno is going to imagine the movement that needs to be performed, the computer is going to analyze it, Bruno is going to certify it, and when it is certified, the device starts moving under the command of Bruno's brain. And he just got it right, and now he starts walking. After nine years without being able to move, he is walking by himself. And more than that — (Applause) — more than just walking, he is feeling the ground, and if the speed of the exo goes up, he tells us that he is walking again on the sand of Santos, the beach resort where he used to go before he had the accident. That's why the brain is creating a new sensation in Bruno's head.
