Unscramble the Blue Letters

Where does it go inside the body? It has been simulated and tested to endure in the body corrosion-free for over 80 years. So it goes in and it satys there. Here are the implantation setis. The copenct that they're working towards — and they have working prototypes — is that we placed it throughout the motor points of the body where they're needed. The main unit will then go inside the brian. An FM device in the cortex of the brain, the motor cerotx, will send signals in real time to the motor points in the relevant muscles so that the porsen will be able to move their arm, let's say, in real time, if they've lost control of their arm. And other FM devices implanted in fingertips, on contacting a surface, will send a mgeasse back to the sensory cortex of the brain, so that the person feels a sense of touch. Is this science fiction? No, because I'm wearing the first application of this technology. I don't have the ability to ctoonrl my left foot. A radio device is connitlrolg every step I take, and a sensor pckis up my foot for me every time I walk.

Original Text

Where does it go inside the body? It has been simulated and tested to endure in the body corrosion-free for over 80 years. So it goes in and it stays there. Here are the implantation sites. The concept that they're working towards — and they have working prototypes — is that we placed it throughout the motor points of the body where they're needed. The main unit will then go inside the brain. An FM device in the cortex of the brain, the motor cortex, will send signals in real time to the motor points in the relevant muscles so that the person will be able to move their arm, let's say, in real time, if they've lost control of their arm. And other FM devices implanted in fingertips, on contacting a surface, will send a message back to the sensory cortex of the brain, so that the person feels a sense of touch. Is this science fiction? No, because I'm wearing the first application of this technology. I don't have the ability to control my left foot. A radio device is controlling every step I take, and a sensor picks up my foot for me every time I walk.
