Magnetic Brain Implants

Magnetic Brain Implants
Engineers at Rice University have designed a neural implant called MagNI that can be powered and programmed using an external magnetic field.

Current implants are controlled using wires, which can become problematic inside the brain.

The MagNI uses magnetoelectric transducers to convert a rapidly changing magnetic field into electric current, which can power a device strapped to the outside of the body which can be used to power the implant, making it the first time a magnetic field can be used to power and also program an implant.
