Our eyes are too slow and our brains are too easily fooled. Just watch this video where Illusionist Eric Leclerc shows off by reading our minds through a simple YouTube video. He plays around with us in the beginning but at the end, he just jumped through the computer screen to peer into our wrinkled brain.
Researchers have invented a mind-reading system that, for the first time in history, allows any person to type words and phrases letter by letter, just by thinking. It all occurs in real time, without moving a single muscle or uttering a single word.
Researchers equipped with fMRI machines have shown that they can link specific brainwave functions to specific objects, ideas or emotions. What they see as innovation, I see as the goddamn thought police running amuck in 30 years.
A doctor sits in front of a screen, analyzing and recording the neurons firing as you lay asleep, dreaming, electrodes implanted in your brain. He can tell exactly what you're dreaming about. Reality? Not quite yet.
Mind-controlled toys are one of those little things that remind you we're sort of living in the future today (also: Disney FastPass). If you have some brain/computer schemes of your own, here's a thorough guide to hacking those toys.
You already know what's on my mind, but what if you could see exactly what I'm thinking about? Might not be long before you can, because there have been some minor successes in thought decoding technology.
Emotiv's "mind-reading" controller is a press darling, mainly because it's really cool. Apparently, though, Emotiv won't have the headset ready to go for the planned December release, because it doesn't, strictly speaking, well, work.
Researchers at Berlin's Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience have created the ultimate gadget, a device that can read people's minds. The donut-shaped contraption is basically a souped up MRI that scans the prefrontal cortex region of your brain (which is where decisions are made) and then predicts actions…
