    Well,

    today in tv they showed that finaly they have a fully working controler (dunno if for computer or console or whatever) that worked with your brain (currently at the Games Convention) !

    I am not sure if its a good thing or a bad thing.
    I believe especially for Gamers it could be really cool not to have the need of a mouse any more and just think what you wanna do.
    But if i think about the possibility to "read out the brain" even if its still limited i am asking myself if it couldn't be dangerous as well ... think about if they would use the method of reading and change it sending into the brain !
    I wouldn't really want to get informations forced into my brain ... who knows what this could become.

    Only the thaught that it might be possible in the future to get controled trough something like this, scary thaught
    I would not want that ... well maybe if it would be a good looking woman controling me ... XD



    Ok i jumped to conclusions and horror scenarios of what might be able later on ...
    but what do you think of the new controling device ? I think even thaught bad things might be possible later on its still very cool !

    Lazy bastards... you've got legs so get up and get the remote, instead of using your brain.

    now lets say you were playing starcraft with this "brain controller".
    wow. I can imagine myself thinking
    "make 9 drones"
    "send zerglings to 3 o'clock"
    "hydralisk retreat"
    "tank is attacking on 12 o'clock multi"
    and
    "Shit not enough minerals"
    all at the same time o.O;;;

    And while we sit idly and play silly casual games, the controller is actually using our brain for its own sinister purposes. While our conscious mind is preoccupied by falling blocks and raving Rabbids, the subconscious part is being used as processing time for their dark calculations. Slowly, all gamers will become one huge organic networked computer, creating the Organic Synthesis Intelligence that will take control of the world. With Terminators.


    Or, you can take the blue pill and go back to bed and believe whatever you want to believe.



    The truth is out there.

    Why is everyone complaining? This is the next step towards Virtual Reality.

    Imagine a gaming system that pulls you right into the game by tricking your brain into thinking you are inside the world of the game, moving and acting freely like you would in the real world...
    Scary, but cool nonetheless [​IMG]

    Oh know, what if they steal all the info and go, oh this person's a pirate, sue him. Or, OMGZ P0RNZ! That would be horrible, playing a Mario game and suddenly Nintendo recieves a message, "porn!" [​IMG]

    But yeah in the future it will be like, don't be lazy, use your brain. [​IMG]

    My fear is that they will get to a point where they will KNOW exactly what you are thinking. I don't want ANYTHING reading my thoughts. That's my last little bit of privacy I have left. What I think and what I do are two completely different things.

    I can just see it now.....you start getting fines for improper or impure thoughts or some crap like that and receive fines (or worse) for what you are thinking.

    I don't freakin' think so! (no pun intended)

    Anyone with half a brain should realize that controlling a game with your mind is only the beginning of that kind of crap.


    They already have polygraphs to tell if you're lying. They already have drug tests to tell if you smoked a joint a week ago and will screw you out of a job or fine you because of it, regardless of your work performance.

    No. You can keep your thought detectors. I want NO part of them.

    And now you guys are talking about mind control with these devices?!? Oh HELL no!

    I hope I'm long dead before they ever get to the point where they can read (or control) MY mind with some electronic gadget. If my mind could be read, I'd either be incarcerated, stuck in a loony bin or killed. I can have some pretty demented thoughts sometimes, who doesn't? But like I said, what I think and what I do are two different things. Still, they would use that to profile you and lock you out of things or pigeon-hole you into a specific group of people when they would otherwise have had no knowledge about any of it. If they could control your mind, god knows what kind of crap you'd be put through.

    No. Just NO!

    "They" are currently working on a beam capable of taking a fMRI at a distance. And if you know what that means you just crapped yourself.

    fMRI stands for funtional Magnetic Resonance Imaging which works on the principle of measuring blood flow to the currently activated parts of the brain. They know roughly which parts of the brain are responsible for Speech, memory, elaboration, Ficition, Morals, instincts, musle movements, senses ETC With this knowledge they could tell which parts of your brain are getting a greater inflow of blood and are currenly activated. Therefore they can shoot a beam at your head from across a room and know if you are speaking the truth (from memory) or making up a lie (higher functioning).

    And....the end begins....now.

    Ps. I am going to be receiving availability to an Emotiv EPOC sometime hopefully soon. I think this may be the device which was featured at the gaming show.
