As Humans we could be much more efficient communicators if we could bypass language altogether and directly transmit thoughts, ideas and instructions from one brain to another.
Scientists have demonstrated that instant brain-to-brain communication could become a reality with the help of computers.
In recent experiments, researchers from the University of Washington showed that they could send one person’s thoughts through a computer to control the hand motion of a person sitting half a mile (0.8 kilometers) away.
The team first demonstrated this brain-to-brain connection was possible back in August 2013. But now the researchers have put the technology through more rigorous testing and are close to making it usable in real-world scenarios.
