This doesn’t seem particularly remarkable. The generation of “phosphenes” isn’t new, right? So it should hardly be notable that someone should be able to make a choice to move forward or down based on whether one was generated.

This seems right down there with the “thought-controlled nanobots” and “direct brain-to-brain communication”. Or even slightly reminiscent of the Atari Mindlink, which allowed game control via the waggling of one’s eyebrows.


It’s an important step on the road to saving those who have been “locked in”.
