Write Brained

by Jesse Anna Bornemann

“An experimental device that turns thoughts into text has allowed a man who was left paralyzed by
an accident to construct sentences swiftly on a computer screen. The man was able to type with 95%
accuracy just by imagining he was handwriting letters on a sheet of paper, a team reported
Wednesday in the journal Nature.”


The future’s here, and how exciting—
We can use our brains for writing!
Just one thing I’ll ask discreetly:
Doctors, could you think more neatly?
