Scientists have developed a machine which is capable of reading our mind and revealing our most private thoughts. ....The researchers' analysis was found to be 97 per cent accurate but they went on to show that they could distinguish between two similar objects, such as two different tools, almost as successfully.
Using an advanced form of MRI scanner, they analysed how the brain reacted to ten drawings of tools and buildings.
They then used a computer programme to work out whether a person was thinking about a tool or a building.

So how good is the advancement of technology now? Are we never going to be able to walk around and think in private again.
Wouldn't the tinfoil hat you are wearing which is strapped to your head slam directly up at the magnet in the MRI, causing massive brain damage? That may be a way to beat it, after the head injury all you will be able to think is "tomato, tomato, tomato..."

Why not focus on the good things mentioned in the article, like autism research.
