Think for a moment about the future of digital interfaces. What if you could wear electronic clothes and your skin could be interactive? What if a biointerface could directly link your cortical activity to the cloud? Our panel brings together experts in neural implants and soft electronics from Switzerland to explore how the human body and technology may be seamlessly integrated in the future. Discussions will focus on new, intelligent neuroprosthetics that may one day reverse paralysis once and for all, and what this technology means for tomorrow’s digital interfaces.
