Science and Technology bring us Telepathy!

Te·lep·a·thy: [tuh-lep-uh-thee] –noun – Communication between minds by some means other than sensory perception.

That’s right folks –telepathy is just within reach.  Researchers at the University of California, San Diego have developed a system that allows users to dial a number on a cellphone using nothing but their thoughts.  The user puts on a headband of electrodes and the system tracks electrical activity in the brain via a Bluetooth device.  You can watch a demo video: click here

So if we can use our thoughts to dial a cell phone, a device that wirelessly transmits a message across the globe, when will technology allow us to use our thoughts to wirelessly transmit our thoughts? I’m thinking: real soon.

Between both this article and my recent post about how Apple is tracking our every move, it seems we are not too far off from a society much like the one described in the Tom Cruise movie Minority Report.
