Fearless in Seattle – A Vulcan Mind Meld Achieved
Calling all Trekkies! A Vulcan mind meld has been achieved – at the University of Washington, nonetheless. That’s right. Researchers at the Seattle institution of higher learning have boldly gone where no researcher has gone before. Here’s what they did. One researcher sat on one end of campus with an electrode-bearing cap on his head while playing a simple video game – with his mind. Apparently this is no big deal; for some time, researchers have been able to transmit brain signals that result in actions by a computer or other mechanical apparatus (like a prosthetic arm). But they didn’t stop there.
