Scientists: Close to Stealing Your Thoughts?

 I wanted to write a slightly longer post about this video than I normally do. When I saw this video, I was kind of blown away. The fact that scientists can now monitor the human brain and see images like this from it is truly amazing, even though the images don't look that good right now. Not convinced? Let me point out a few things:

1. The images are generally in the right location on the screen. The outline may be a bit blurry, but to even be able to localize images like this is a huge accomplishment.

2. The general shape of the image is correct.  Specifically with the airplane, the computer might not be able to see all of the features of the image, but the general shape is correct.

3. The colors are reasonable. Again, the colors of the image, especially the face, are reasonable enough to tell that you're seeing a face.

It will be amazing what scientist will be able to read 20 years from now.
