Intel brain implant chip; available for the consumer market by 2020.
Statements quoted and sourced.
Intel released that it will have brain chips for the consumer market by 2020.  The brain implants Intel states will enable consumers to type without a keyboard or mouse, control the TV without a remote, make calls, and surf the Web simply by using their brain waves. The consumer will be able to control computers, as well as other things in the environment, with nothing more than thought.
Intel thinks people will warm to the idea. Andrew Chien vice president of research and director of future technologies research at Intel Labs stated” If you told people 20 years ago that they would be carrying computers all the time , they would have said, I don’t want that. I don’t need that. Now you can’t get them to stop [carrying devices]. ”He went on to state that “there are a lot things that have to be done first, but I think [implanting chips into human brains] is well within the scope of possibility.”
Justin R. Rattner Intel CTO (Chief Technology Officer )
“As machine learning and computer perception progresses, machines will take on more and more human-like characteristics, he added. Recently, scientists have been putting electrodes into living neurons in living brains, but some researchers are working on ways to transfer brain waves and organic information without the electrodes, which wouldn't be physically intrusive.
"You can imagine a future where, in fact, not just our very senses will be engaged, but our thoughts will drive machine behavior," said Rattner. "You can see how that boundary starts to soften and begins to blur.... There's no question in my mind that the technology will bring these two unique and distinct forms of intelligence together."
The scientists at Intel’s research lab in Pittsburg say Big Brother won’t be planting chips in your brain against your will. Intel research scientist Dean Pomerleau told computerworld that users will soon tire of depending on a computer interface, and having to fish a device out of their pocket or bag to access it. He also predicted that users will tire of having to manipulate an interface with their fingers. Instead, they’ll simply manipulate their various devices with their brains. “ We’re trying to prove you can do interesting things with brain waves,” said Pomerleau. “Eventually people may be willing to be more committed…to brain implants. Imagine being able to surf the Web with the power of your thoughts.” Pomerleau’s research team from Intel includes, Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburg.
