Developing an artificial brain will be a great acheivement for scientist. Because it is not necessary that they will be successfull in developing virtual brain they in dong so tthey will come across differen t functions and neurons of the brain which will help increase there understanding .
Thanks Elizebeth for such an interesting post , Brain to brain interface is a very good thing. It can help in many ways like controllig thr brains of the other not only this but also in controlling the actions of others as well.

War is very nasty and the goal is to win. Hopefully to win without even firing a shot, but win none the less.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
