It is already possible to control a virtual hand by thought alone using a sensor on the skin. However, better sensors are needed before precise control of a prosthesis or an exoskeleton is possible.

The goal of the NeuroQ project is not only to develop quantum magnetometers that function under normal conditions, but also to test them already for controlling neural exoskeletons with patients.
