Researcher Controls Colleague's Motions in First Human Brain-To-Brain Interface


LINK

VIDEO

quote:

Using electrical brain recordings and a form of magnetic stimulation, Rajesh Rao sent a brain signal to Andrea Stocco on the other side of the UW campus, causing Stocco's finger to move on a keyboard.


quote:

Rao looked at a computer screen and played a simple video game with his mind. When he was supposed to fire a cannon at a target, he imagined moving his right hand (being careful not to actually move his hand), causing a cursor to hit the "fire" button. Almost instantaneously, Stocco, who wore noise-canceling earbuds and wasn't looking at a computer screen, involuntarily moved his right index finger to push the space bar on the keyboard in front of him, as if firing the cannon. Stocco compared the feeling of his hand moving involuntarily to that of a nervous tic.


I find this fascinating.

Well with this you may be able to make real girls do things to you with just a thought.

I believe they have been doing something like this since the 60's. See Sirhan Sirhan.

yes, fascinating, but no good will come from the ability to control someone else's mind.

Like Uncle Ben said, "with great power come great responsibility." Humans don't possess that ability.

This is fricking nuts. This is one of the biggest developments of the decade, but shockingly this is buried under bull shite "WYHI" threads and no one knows any better. This is proof we need a tech board. The Singularity is Near my friends.

Does this mean I can become an immortal? Like a robotic version of Duncan MacLeod?

This is awesome. Now we can control slaves with our mind to do things like work in factories or fight on the front lines.

Science is magic.


Magic is science.
The great wheel turns on, spinning others in it's revolutions as the machine plods on relentlessly, remorselessly.


The tendrils have already spread out, and grow by the day.
And by the time we realize they've wrapped around our throats, it will be far too late.

The entity must be wrangled, or surely we shall find ourselves thralls.

I wouldn't want to be immortal unless I could say "I am Duncan MacLeod of the clan Macleod"

Add a fart noise at the end of a serious speech.

Comedy gold.

That was my Dr. Orpheus voice, FWIW
