This is honestly a major breakthrough. One of the biggest barriers to communication is the limits of language; this seems like an excellent step in the direction of *direct* communication. Hopefully one day we can have that rather than translating ideas and concepts into words, share those words, then translating those words back into ideas and concepts. It would save a lot of time, and would further allow significantly more complex and accurate communication.

My sister suffers from Parkinson’s and due to complications she can no longer speak, does anyone know how to contact the folks for possible trial and test opportunities?

Amazing! Here’s to hoping accuracy and availability can be improved.
