Now we are on the cusp of being able to drive by and scan people and actually see what they are thinking. This is no longer in the realm of science fiction and is now science fact.

See the video for yourself, simply amazing.


Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have managed to decode and reconstruct dynamic visual experiences stored in the human brain. Currently, researchers are only able to reconstruct movie clips people have already viewed. However, the breakthrough is expected to pave the way for reproducing the movies inside our heads that no one else sees - such as dreams and memories.

"This is a major leap toward reconstructing internal imagery," explained Professor Jack Gallant, a UC Berkeley neuroscientist and coauthor of the study published online today in the journal Current Biology. "We are opening a window into the movies in our minds."

Freaky! I find the clips constructed from brain activity a little eerie and nightmarish. It's amazing technology.

Not buying that at all.

Who are 'they' and where was the 'research' supposedly done?

Not buying it either.

It was published meaning it was peer reviewed. Can you buy that?

This could be really bad for our civil liberty and REALLY awesome for entertainment.

IM torn.

I'm not buying that this is "new" technology. They, the elite behind closed doors, have technology we can't comprehend. What they peddle out to the public is usually dribble that's decades old to them, but they can use it to recoup their costs by selling it to us.

Yeah, that is scary to me. I'm not thinking that could be good at all.

Although, It would be very interesting if they could get it to work on animals!

I can agree with that. Also, most tech breakthroughs happen to more than one team of scientist at any given time.

I don't have to go that far "off the wall" to suspect that it is older than the publication.
Most people don't release this type of information without doing enough research, and setting up the capacity to do this. I expect that they've worked on this for at least 5 years, if not more.

It so borders on the personal privacy violations of a person if used in the wrong hands . Hold onto your hats and pleading the 5th OMG . Your thoughts are your property . Sci FI coming to life if factual .

Like most transmissions that can be received, they can also be broadcast out. Anyone besides TPTB think of that usage for this technology?

I seen this done with a cat before.

The images were fuzzy, but not as abstract as those from the humans.

*This is going to help alot of people. Retarded children who cannot communicate or kids who have a hard time conveying their ideas, they won't be limited the way the used to.

And what about people in comas. We will be able to see what they see in their dreams.

Here is the technology being used on a cat:



It is neato.

Just as with any technology, it can be used for good or evil. I'd like to see this used in a positive way of course. I've always wanted something that would be able to record what I'm seeing in my head. I almost can't believe it's coming to reality. I never thought I'd see the day, not in my lifetime. It is at it's most basic level right now, but I'm sure they'll keep working and improving on these things as the years go by. My imagination is running wild with all the possibilities. I for one can't wait until I have the ability to see my own thoughts and images projected onto a screen for a select few to see. For an artist, writer, film director or even an inventor this would be an invaluable tool of communication between viewer and creator. That is if the image quality actually improves. I wonder if they tested this with different types of people. Some people are more able to visualize things in their heads than others. Would they be able to create more recognizable images?
