A new breakthrough material will enable human brains to merge with artificial intelligence (AI), scientists have claimed.
The bio-synthetic material was presented at the American Chemical Society Fall 2020 virtual expo.
Experts claim it will pave the way to integrating electronics with the body to create "cyborg" beings.
Dr David Martin, who led the study, said: "We got the idea for this project because we were trying to interface rigid organic microelectrodes with the brain, but brains are made out of organic, salty, live materials.
"It wasn't working well, so we thought there must be a better way.
"We started looking at organic electronic materials like conjugated polymers that were being used in non-biological devices.
"We found a chemically stable example that was sold commercially as an antistatic coating for electronic displays."
Previously connecting electronics to human tissue has been a major problem due to scarring, reports the Independent.
Such scars can then halt electronic signals passing between computers and muscle or brain tissue.
But researchers at the University of Delaware were able to overcome this using the new material, known as Pedot.

Dr Martin added: "Name your favourite biomolecule, and you can in principle make a Pedot film that has whatever biofunctional group you might be interested in."
Last week, Daily Star Online revealed plans to place AI-powered eyes in the eye-sockets of sex robots.
This will enable them to recognise humans in a crowded room, or start a conversation with someone they don't recognise.
Jenny Kleeman, a journalist who wrote Sex Robots and Vegan Meat, said in her book: "Matt has big plans for Harmony's future.
"They are working on her vision system; soon her facial recognition will be such that she'll realise when someone she's never met before has walked into the room and she'll ask who they are.
"Once the full body system is available, it will have heating so she will be at body temperature, and a set of internal and external sensors, so she knows when she's being touched."
