This podcast's purpose is to bring together the field of neuroprosthetics/brain machine interfaces/brain implants in an understandable conversation about the current topics and breakthroughs.

We hope to replace needing to read scientific papers on new research in an easy to digest way.

People can share thoughts or ideas to facilitate 'idea sex' to make the field of brain implants a smaller and more personal space.

Dima Gazda is the CEO and founder of Esper Bionics which is a company that makes a prosthetic arm that gains abilities overtime with you. They plan to use this 'simple' neurotech solution to springboard them solve other larger neurotech problems.

Top 3 Takeaways:

  •  We are building an ecosystem and will be building more products in addition to the robotic arm. Next will be a better user control system and then a robotic leg
  • A physician can only add about 3000 patient-years of life but an engineer and entrepreneur can add millions because their inventions can impact more people
  • Neurotechnology will be as big of a change for humanity as cars and computers were
