Neural Implants for Typing

Interesting John Timmer article in ArsTechnica today on a neural implant that lets a paralyzed person type by imagining writing.  You can check out the article here.

Previous approaches that require the person to imagine using a standard keyboard seem questionable since the current keyboard design was thought up to slow down people's typing on mechanical typewriters by making it more difficult.  

Although some people protest the story of QWERTY we were all told.
