Food for thought – telepathy

Here Come The Dannies

How close are we to human telepathy? Well — define telepathy. I mean, slap on a cheapNeurosky or Emotiv headset, have a friend do the same, carve up your Google Cardboard so its fits over them, code up a rudimentary two-way protocol to communicate between each person’s headset and the other person’s smartphone, and guess what, that is a kind of direct mind-to-mind communication. Crude, confusing, and low-bandwidth, to be sure; but also something any hackerspace denizen worthy of the name could throw together out of homegrown software and off-the-shelf hardware.
