Not long ago, I posted a short lecture from TED about the use of mushrooms to replace plastics. All very interesting but this new post is really quite extraordinary The headset shown in the lecture looks surprisingly similar to a brain-computer linking device in the 1983 film "Brainstorm." (That device was capable of connecting and recording brain to brain sensations, thoughts and feelings.)
It's important to remember that this invention is merely a prototype and the finished product would, no doubt, be capable of much more. Impressive and a little scary.
