Stephen Hawking lost his voice 30 years ago due to motor neurone disease. At present, he uses a computer to communicate with others. But now he is losing the ability to use the computer gradually. That’s why, he has been working with Philip Low, a professor at Stanford University to make a new device which can pick up brain waves and turn them into words. Eventually, the group has made the iBrain.

Hawking is currently testing the device. It will be revealed with latest results at a conference in Cambridge next month by researchers. There the technology may be explained for Hawking. Prof Low said, “We’d like to find a way to bypass his body, pretty much hack his brain.”

Before the conference, Hawking and Low has narrated that how the physicist had learned to create patterns of inspires by imagining moving his hands and limbs. iBrain could catch sophisticated brain activities and turn them into words. Researchers hope that in future, it will be able to read a person’s mind.

“This is very exciting for us because it allows us to have a window into the brain. We’re building technology that will allow humanity to have access to the human brain for the first time,” said Prof Low.

He also added, “The emergence of such biomarkers opens the possibility to link intended movements to a library of words and convert them into speech, thus providing motor neurone sufferers with communication tools more dependent on the brain than on the body.”
