Standardizing the Brain-Machine Interface

Earlier this year in a lab at Duke University, in Durham, N.C., a clever, raisin-gobbling ­monkey named Idoya made a robot move in Japan—just by thinking. And she wasn’t alone. She joined ranks with, among others, a ­paraplegic man who recently used his brain to move a cursor around a computer screen.

Chronicles of Narnia:Prince Caspian

I was only four or five when Narnia-the TV series was being broadcasted on television, at that time we had only one tv channel in Bangladesh, but it was more than enough. What more a kid need from tv when Narnia or Thundercats is going on ! I still remember the day I missed an episode because of power failure and how long I cried ! My mom tried to make me sleep and I used to close my eyes pretending to be asleep and waiting for 3:30 every Friday.
After a long long time , the movie released..now I am grown up enough and yet I believe I will stuck before the tv set if I see that series is going on. wish I can watch it again, but the DVD is not available here,my bad luck .The movie was good enough, but not geat as the tv show, but it's true that I am not that four-year-kid now, so taste can vary !
I am eagerly waiting for the second part Prince Caspian. It is to be released on May 15. I hope it will be more successful than the first episode. I still remember some scene from the tv series of Prince Caspian..the four siblings were waiting on a railway station,.., a gragon,..a ship..something like that. I am greatly excited to recap that memory twenty years later..wow !! What a great summer treat.
The four Pevensie children return to Narnia, only to discover that hundreds of years have passed since they ruled there, and the evil King Miraz has taken charge. With the help of a heroic mouse called Reepicheep, and the exiled heir to the throne, Prince Caspian, they set out to overthrow the King, once again with Aslan's help...I hope someday Silver Chair-the third part will also be released in the silver screen.
