Re: Brain-To-Brain Interface: A Bold First Step
This is way cool. If something seems too good to be true, it often is, and it does look like the University of Washington study automates (or, doesn't automate) a few more steps than less honest article writers than yourself might have us believe, Dave. In addition to the 'yes/no' output being the moving of a cursor, the receiver simply sees a flash of light for 'yes' and nothing for no - then they tell their computer what they saw through manual input. they're also picking from a pretty short pre-determined list of items and questions. Nevertheless, 72% is a decisive outcome, and as you said, this is an inventive use of these core bulding blocks and an amazing step towards the future. The interplay of these technologies could be the next mobile revolution, sprouting up and going global faster than we know it.
