Adam Wilson posted two messages on Twitter on April 15. The first one, "GO BADGERS," might have been sent by any University of Wisconsin-Madison student cheering for the school team.
His second post, 20 minutes later, was a little more unusual: "SPELLING WITH MY BRAIN."
Wilson, a doctoral student in biomedical engineering, was confirming an announcement he had made two weeks earlier -- his lab had developed a way to post messages on Twitter using electrical impulses generated by thought....
Alexander Graham Bell's first telephone message is well known as: "Mr Watson... Come here. I want to see you." It's hard to say whether the first Twitter message sent via a brain-machine interface only will be remembered as "GO BADGERS," or as "SPELLING WITH MY BRAIN" ;) ...but I think the event will be remembered.
