LOS ANGELES — Here's a mind-bending idea: The U.S. military is paying scientists to study ways to read people's thoughts. The hope is that the research could someday lead to a gadget capable of translating the thoughts of soldiers who suffered brain injuries in combat or even stroke patients in hospitals.

Armed with a $4 million grant from the Army, scientists are studying brain signals to try to decipher what a person is thinking and to whom the person wants to direct the message.

I saw this on the news ticker this afternoon but don't remember this article, which is from last year. While its no surprise that the U.S. Army would fund studies such as this, I find the possible uses of such a technology very interesting. Has anyone seen an update on this?

Well it's scary but the idea is cool. It would really be bad if they could expand that and be able to read anyone's mind they want... Wow! they would have a field day w/ thought crimes,lol.But at the same time it would be cool if we all could learn how to communicate with each other via telepathy and if we had the ability to block others from reading your thoughts when you didnt want them to.
