Google is destroying your memory | KurzweilAI - 0 views

  •  
    Well, OK, maybe not totally destroying it, just making it unnecessary to rely on friends, libraries, books, notes, and other forms of "transactive memory" (external systems), thanks to the rise of Internet search engines, Wikipedia, and other Internet tools.

Control your home with thought alone | KurzweilAI - 0 views

  •  
    More than 50 severely disabled people in Second Life have been trying out a sophisticated new brain-computer interface (BCI) that lets users freely explore Second Life's virtual world and control their real-world environment.

    The system was developed by medical engineering company G.Tec of Schiedlberg, Austria as part of a pan-European project called Smart Homes for All. It's the first time the latest BCI technology has been combined with smart-home technology and online gaming.

    To activate a command, the user focuses their attention on the corresponding icon on a screen. Electroencephalograph (EEG) caps pick up brain signals, which are translated into commands to navigate and communicate within Second Life and Twitter. It can also be used to open and close doors, answer the phone, and control the TV, lights, thermostat, and intercom.

    G.Tec's system has been tested at the Santa Lucia Foundation Hospital in Rome, Italy.

New Scientist TV: Hack your hand to learn the guitar - 0 views

  •  
    Instead of practicing for hours, a device can now teach you a tune by taking control of your hand (see video above). The system, developed by the University of Tokyo and Sony Computer Science Laboratories, is appropriately named PossessedHand and electrically stimulates muscles in your arm that move your fingers. Tests have shown that the device can help you learn the correct fingering faster but many find the concept unsettling. Would you be willing to have your hand hacked to learn an instrument?

  •  
    Through education, media, and big business, your mind is being controlled. Your mind is distracted with illusions to keep you away from the truth. Reason why America is dumbed down.
