This company started by Brian Hatt and Professor Richard A. Normann, the inventor of the Utah Electrode Array, was later acquired by Cybernetics Neurotechnology Systems Inc. (CKI). Having made major strides in applying the technology to the human body, the research business of CKI was then purchased by Blackrock Microsystems, LLC.
