New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs

For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

This is Maria Christian, my former cast director at the Michigan Renaissance Festival as her character, Princess Isaade M’boukou. Maria’s been designing and wearing African-Elizabethan fusion garb to MiRF for decades, so she has a few different gowns and headpieces in rotation. In addition to her duties keeping the stage acts organized, as Isaade she acts as an impresario at the feasts, talks about West African traditions and folklore, and is much needed and treasured PoC representation on the cast.

Hey guys I need your help spreading this on social media so our people in Ferguson can defend themselves from attacks from the police.

This is important to add. When constructing this make sure the elastic to secure the bottle to the top of your head does not puncture the plastic or if it does the rubber needs to cover it. Also, make sure you keep it tight to your head as the gas only needs a small cap and tear gas can irritate greatly in small concentrations. (it can be flammable in high concentrations.) I would recommend diving goggles for your eyes as well as doing your best to ensure the bottle fits tightly against your forehead, jaw, cheeks, and chin.  Also if you can make sure the elastic can be tightened and loosened, this will help with sealing out the tear gas.
