Do you really love your cellphones and computers this much?
If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, don't tell Intel researchers. Intel's Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020.
The scientists anticipate that consumers will adapt quickly to the idea, and indeed crave the freedom of not requiring a keyboard, mouse, or remote control for surfing the Web or changing channels.
If your idea of "freedom" is not having to use a keyboard or remote control, you have a seriously skewed concept of freedom. In fact enslaving yourself to electronic gadgets via brain implants, seems to be the exact opposite of freedom. Doesn't it? Think about it?
Turning brain waves into real-world tech action still requires some heavy decoding of brain activity. The Intel team has already made use of fMRI brain scans to match brain patterns with similar thoughts across many test subjects.
Sorry, but science knows zip, zero, zilch, about the way brains work. This will end badly, very badly.
Profit making taken to far?
