We present BrainNet which, to our knowledge, is the first multi-person non-invasive direct brain-to-brain interface for collaborative problem solving. The interface combines electroencephalography (EEG) to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to deliver information noninvasively to the brain. The interface allows three human subjects to collaborate and solve a task using direct brain-to-brain communication. Two of the three subjects are "Senders" whose brain signals are decoded using real-time EEG data analysis to extract decisions about whether to rotate a block in a Tetris-like game before it is dropped to fill a line. The Senders' decisions are transmitted via the Internet to the brain of a third subject, the "Receiver," who cannot see the game screen. The decisions are delivered to the Receiver's brain via magnetic stimulation of the occipital cortex. The Receiver integrates the information received and makes a decision using an EEG interface about either turning the block or keeping it in the same position.

Five groups of three subjects successfully used BrainNet to perform the Tetris task, with an average accuracy of 0.813. Furthermore, by varying the information reliability of the Senders by artificially injecting noise into one Sender's signal, we found that Receivers are able to learn which Sender is more reliable based solely on the information transmitted to their brains.


Came across this. I'm honestly not sure how I feel about it. On one hand it's amazing we can do things like this and opes the doors to all sorts of cool things. But, on the other, it kinda scares thr # outta me and opens the door to a lot of horrifying things.

I could see it being helpful in teaching, passing on skills, creating challenges like the one in the article, or collaboratively working on things.

But I can't help but think it could lead to things like mind control or the ability to coerce people's decisions depending on how the technology is developed.

I also can't help but wonder what it feels like having someone else 'send' you a decision.

Anyone have any thoughts?

We are the borg you will be assimilated.
Cybernetic Communism.

It's just another effort to counter people that are awakening. Mastering certain abilities will be all much harder with incoming tech. Much like taking a walk while you have personal flying car with free fuel at your disposal.

At least with Communism you could see the enemy coming

No thanks, I don’t want to be mind raped. I prefer originality to the Borg collective.

Or at least disagree with them, a collective consciousness can be both good and bad but on balance I don't like the idea because we like our individuality and while it would of course be not so much a direct threat to that it would most certainly provide another hurdle creating a new social norm far beyond following a fashion or a social trend and of course then it could over time become ever more extreme until the whole concept of individuality became a thing of the past creating a hive minded society as the technology progressed and ever more invasive and pervasive form's became socially acceptable until even the concept of private thought was a thing of the past.

A bit borglike don't you think?
It would eliminate the ability to lie, cheat and steal the world would become a better place because teh group would identify the bad people before they have a chance to do any damage.

I myself would not, it is too close to being the 'mark of the beast' for me.
