That book sounds interesting, Blac, and worth a look. This definitely is an invention that would've appeared in scifi before it made it to real life.

It is a bit strange to wrap your head around this type of thing at first, Nadine, I will admit. And I still don't 100 percent grasp how it is possible--I suppose that would only come with experiencing it first hand. But it is pretty cool and could have some good applications.

You should read "The Genesis Machine" by James P. Hogan.  He put a lot of thought into the beneficial uses of such a device.  He called the machine a BIAC, Bio InterActive Computer.  I think you will enjoy reading it.

And we thought cyber-bullying was bad before?!  Imagine what happens when some crazed teen 'victim' gets his hands on this and starts making his teachers chug drano or his 'enemies' jump off buildings or stick their hands into the french fry machine at McDonald's.  With every technological advance, we need to be certain we gain the wisdom to use it properly before we actually start using it.  Gunpowder, nuclear power, rocketry, and so forth prove that our capacity to understand the ramifications of misusing technology is extremely small when compared to our ability to dream up and justify the use of that technology.  And if cyber-bullying sounds like something impossible, how about someone like Osama bin Laden (notice I said LIKE him because I know he's dead) using this technology to direct unsuspecting suicide bombers in a terrorist attack?  This has to be thoroughly studied, and preferably controlled technology to prevent something like that from happening.  I am not paranoid about terrorists, I just have no faith in the ability of some humans to do something that is morally acceptable to the majority of people on the planet.  There's always some nutball somewhere who will pervert anything.

 

Remember, there are dozens of ways to use a screwdriver, only one of which is to turn a screw, and any one of which can be used to kill or injure a person.

Haven't I seen TV evangelists doing that ? Projecting thoughts and making your hand move involuntarily towards your wallet...

I can definitely see this being used in physical therapy. 

I must admit, I had an 'ew' moment when I first read the article.  BCI isn't for me personally but I like the possibilities.

Hi, yes there are many other elements inside the human Brainbeside Chemtry, Chemestry generate static electrical waves, carried all the signals around the brain central nervus system. that is what we need to investigate more.  but the human brain has the strngest security system ever.  we need to bypass this security system and access the right wave legnth to the control information of the brain.  I have very strong experties and papers on ultrasound waves, (subliminal technologies).

Yes as you said there is some element of something else going on besides pure chemistry. Cognitive science will open new avenues and throw light on menay other related domains and will indeed trigger an avalanche of innovations. I am really excited about BCI but now it is brain to brain...!

It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
When my daughter decided she wanted to study engineering, I was very proud of her. At the same time, in the back of my mind, I wondered if she knew what she was in for.
