I am both tremendously excited and horrifically terrified by this.
On one hand, you now see the beginnings of the brain computer. When I was in school, I did a project that utilized various means of propaganda to sell
products. The products I "invented" was called the MindLink, which I showed as a hearing aid. You would think some words, the mini-super-computer
inside the MindLink would decrypt the brainwaves into those words, and it would search and display the results wirelessly on a nanotechnology eye
contact, allowing you to see the page directly in the eye. Zoom capabilities and all that stuff were obvious...
Anyway, one of the crucial elements was software capable of very accurately decrypting brainwaves into phrases and images. And here, we have something
showing the first steps toward that very thing.
Now, on the other hand, you have the military and government applications. And if you think those organizations won't be the first on the beta-test
list, then you need your head examined. The practicality of this technology is way too promising for the military to ignore.
So, we have two possibilities: enhance the computing experience and help thousands of disabled people...Or enable military and government officials
and affiliates and sponsors spy on rivals, spy on other governments, and patrol the streets of every nation, monitoring the thoughts of everyone and
policing the populace.
Do you really think they can ignore the power?
