Partially-invasive BCI

Partially invasive BCI or brain computer interface devices, are neuroprosthetics that are implanted on a permanent basis within the skull itself, but only onto the surface of the brain. They spread out electrode arrays over the surface rather than burrowing inside.

The advantage of going under the skull is that the skull acts as a significant brainwave dampener. Additionally, there is the advantage of not cutting into a living brain. Accuracy is better than non invasive systems, but not as high as invasive systems.

This approach typically results in a permanent hole in the skull.

Virtual Colonography vs. Standard Colonoscopy
Virtual colonography is a relatively new field, which is completely non-invasive. A computed Topography (CT) scan is taken, where the body is invasively scanned into slices, which are then reconstituted into a 3D model of a person's colon, for a painless colonoscopy.

Human Interaction with Personally Invasive Non-Lifelike Robots
In all the work we have done towards integrating robots into the health system and care systems respectively, one fundamental question has never really been asked. "How will humans in general react to their physical manipulation or space invasion by clearly intelligent, yet alien machinery?" Long overdue, its time to not anly ask that, but answer it as well.
