What’s going on in the world? A brain-to-brain network that allows three people to share their thoughts. Let’s just repeat that so it sinks in. Three people can Share. Their. Thoughts. More of a first stage experiment rather than dystopian mind control, participants test the brain network by collaboratively playing a Tetris-style game.
The network itself relies on recording brain electrical activity, sending and receiving only simple “bits” data at a time, and flashing LED’s at different frequencies for participants to focus on. We’re not at telepathy levels quite yet.
Being this article is part of our weekly theme on Human Connection, can you imagine how much a fully-integrated brain network could change how we relate and connect with each other? The phrase “are you thinking what I’m thinking?” takes on a whole new meaning.
