Excellent point William K. I hadn't thought of that. There was a Twilight Zone that dealt with that, a kid with the ability to think changes in reality.

Rob, the real nightmare will just be starting when this tcnology is used for marketing products to kids. I see that as probably the first application. If that is not disturbing then nothing is.

Mydesign is right, there have been many studies about brain mapping, often with different goals or studying different aspects of the brain. I saw a news item on this one in one of those British online newspapers where you expect to see headlines like "Aliens Stole My Baby," so wasn't sure if this was real.

Rob, now CGI is so good that the sci-fi/fantasy movies are showing us stuff even better than we can dream up.

Connect that device to the average male college students' head, and you could not legally publish a photograph of the final printed object.

"Today's younger generation is much better than the 40s-plus crowd when it comes to using computers and cell phones,"

Charles, you are right. The new generation kids are very fast in learning and adapting things to their life. One simple example is my kid, which is 30 months old operates my laptop for watching Mickey Mouse and other cartoon clips. Now a days she is operating TV also for the same.

I think this article is mainly meant about brain mapping, which is still in childhood stages for medical science. So far many studies had done with respect to brain mapping and emotional thinking. Recently, I heard that some other forms of computational simulation study is happening with respect to emotion using grid computing, by a group of doctors in China.

Today's younger generation is much better than the 40s-plus crowd when it comes to using computers and cell phones, but imagine how fast the gap between young and old will grow when this technology becomes widely available. Kids will know how to use it and everyone else will be virtually shut out.

This is great. The test on brain to design is monsters created by children. That's perfect. When I was a kid, we could always dream up better monsters than the ones depicted in the movies. Now kids are actually getting to do it.
