The X Prize Foundation recently announced that it's working on a new contest that will be offering $10 million to the winner to develop a breakthrough in brain-to-computer interface (BCI) technology. If the foundation comes up with adequate financing, it will be the same amount of buckaroos that they've been giving for advancements in commercial passenger space craft, automotive technology, DNA sequencing, and lunar travel. Although such BCI devices already kinda exist, they are functionally limited and don't lend themselves well to practical, especially clinical use. It is not yet known what the requirements of the Brain-Computer Interface X PRIZE will be, but considering the prize amount it should spur development in the field.
