You have “brain” mail

Brain messages 2
Receiving (and sending) messages has slowly become an annoyance of great proportions, especially if you’ve synced all of your accounts into one giant notification buzzing machine on your smartphone. Now think again: What if a message could be sent, without writing, nor speaking – from a brain of one to a brain of another individual human being? Wouldn’t it be great? – Scientists already did it.

The team, led by Alvaro Pascual-Leone, coined two terms – ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’. Then they proceeded with sending the words from a person’s brain in India to an equivalent one in France (5,000 miles distance) through a computer assisted transmission. What they used is EEG (electroencephalogram) that was connected to the internet and “robot-assisted and image-guided transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) technologies”, as reported by Tech News World.

The study was conducted on four people: One as the sender and the three other as receivers. With the help of EEG, the team converted ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’ into binary code and sent an e-mail with the newly-acquired content from India to France. Then, with non-invasive brain stimulation, a computer interface introduced ‘phosphenes’ (light flashes) that were picked by the participants’ peripheral vision and later decoded (because they appeared numerically).

That’s all great, but all I’m invoking in my brain now is the scene from Demolition Man where Stallone tries to make love with Bullock through some brain-scanning futuristic helmets – unsuccessfully.

Is Bigger and Longer Really Better When it Comes to Sex?

A few days ago I found myself in the most unbearably long line at Walmart.
