iBrain to allow Stephen Hawking to communicate through brainwaves alone

In anticipation, Gizmag spoke to Dr Low about the potential applications of the iBrain.
When Dr Low first met Stephen Hawking, he asked when the renowned astrophysicist would like to begin trialing his new product. Low waited a moment as Hawking entered his response through the pair of infra-red glasses he uses to send messages via the muscles in his cheek. Then the reply came back: “Right now.”
