this is amazing.
watch this youtube video. watch it.
This is why I like this forum, we have random ass cool shit being posted.
It looks like it is showing memories half way through
wtb the reverse to upload porn and action movies
Have already read that @ ubergizmo in the morning. Lol just like in A Space Travesty by Leslie Nielsen.
it seems to me we will need some new kind of DRM to prevent illegal copying and distribution of our brain content.
I still don't understand the procedure despite I read the youtube description 10 times
Anyway very interesting, but I hope it will be well used and not for violate the privacy
This could be quite useful in matters of law.
After they kept on showing Steve Martin I was waiting for them to use this....
This is a cool breakthrough, but if this advances far enough, it could litterally end privacy
if they can scan remotely they can potentially read whatever you might visualize at the time. so yes it is very bad for privacy but at the same time, how much do you really visualize day in and out? some people more than others i know, but when you do - what is it? it is more often than not daydreaming, or conceptual thinking.
i can see it being used in corporate & physical warfare for sure, not so much privacy but security concerns. strategies and maps are visualized often, as well as locations on said maps.
but also for therapy/communication with those with lesser brain activity or impairments, and possibly even other species!
this is how the brain's image copied and transferred to robot
camera phones would suddenly be worthless... and the people blessed with good eyesight would have some interesting job opportunities.
*Son tiptoes through door into dark house at night*
Parents: Son, where have you been! It's 4 in the morning
Son: Um, at a friends house
Parents: *Shows son this video*
I wonder if they can use that to allow the blind to see again--people with defects in the eye or optical nerve.
The video though...is creepy. I don't know why but I'm getting a sense of deja vu watching it.
cause its youtube videos
the video is using a cache, its not reading video from the mind, but rather grabbing one second blocks of video that elicited similar brain reactions from previous tests.
so basically, the more time they spend on this to build a bigger cache, the more accurate the videos will be
No, no, it's the way the reconstructed image looks. Specifically, all the almost fluid abnormalities and its vagueness. I get a sense that I've seen that before but I know I never did.
drugs. you be on the drugs.
I'm not, hand on heart and sworn.
...well, I am, but they're purely mechanical--zero effect on the brain. XD
you're less interesting now
But still interesting? This is good.
This reminds me of a ghost in the shell episode (I think it was in the 2nd gig)
Where a director made a movie that never made it to the big screen for various reasons. (I think it was something to do with his arrogance) but anyway....
when he died he had his brain transfered to a 'hub' where people could come and browse it like youtube. or going to to an old cinema on weekends to watch old B&W movies with john wayne and other actors of the same era etc etc.
People connected to his Brain/hub while surfing the net and they never woke up again. Because the directors movie the people stopped to watch never ended. so they were stuck in a sort of limbo or almost comatose state waiting for it to finish
really philosphical episode.
This is fascinating and scary at the same time. Just think of the privacy invasions you would have with this technology.
You can imagine people having to undergo this under duress (eg police interrogations, insurance checks, job interviews etc) with all their innermost thoughts and fears that they share with no-one, open wide to other people.
I think there would be an almighty outcry which would hold these abuses back significantly.
Time for security software firms like Norton or Kaspersky to make and sell firewalls for our brainzzzzzzz
and sell Anti-zombie defense as an optional $20 upgrade so if the world was ever through into a zombie apocalypse. we know the zombies cant take our brains if we have the lastest anti-zombie database and signatures installed.
It makes perfect sense.... People are always thinking about the 'what ifs' of life. and getting eaten by zombies tops that list.
This will give them a peice of mind while firewall software devs laugh their way to the bank until the bank assistant turns and eats them.
Christ....this is no worse then that episode of Southpark where terrorists invade imagination land.
I always thought my dreams would make awesome movies. Seriously.
numerous spelling mistakes aside, i bolded what i found funny.
Separate names with a comma.
