CTRL-labs

NY-based CTRL-Labs are building a direct-control BCI.

Their founders are all PhD graduates of the Columbia neuroscience program.

Judging by their peer-reviewed papers, and their WIRED feature, the product under development relies on neural signals intended for muscular control.

By isolating activity from specific neurons, they intend to enable a direct-control BCI that doesn't (technically) require muscular action.

However, their current demo - typing without a keyboard, does imply that muscular action is required, at least for now.
