Now imagine this, we’re on our way to transcending the language barrier, with the Brain Computer Interface, for human to human communication, where direct and immediate interpretation or translation will be possible with the appropriate software. Imagine, if you can start understanding, what your dog, your cat or your hamster is thinking? And then now think, if we figure a way, to relay our thoughts or intended messages, to your pets or other animals, in a way, they can understand? Going to the zoo will become a very different experience from what it is today.
Video Friday: Thoughts and Insights on Engineering a Sonic Fractal Matrix: Onyx Ashanti at TEDxBerlinSalon
Onyx Ashanti, nomadic beat cyborg, performs at TedX Berlin. His presentation Thoughts and Insights on Engineering a Sonic Fractal Matrix offers an immediately accessible introduction to his work from both technical and experiential perspectives. ###
Stroboscopic training led to significantly greater re-test improvement in central visual field motion sensitivity and transient attention abilities.
There is no such thing as a ‘phantom limb’. On the face of it, that’s obvious – a phantom limb is no longer present and, therefore, does not exist. That is not what I mean.

To understand this, look at it the other way around: we don’t say that a person with a limb over which she has no control has a ‘phantom brain map’ for that inoperative limb.
A report this week in Nature documents the work of Duke University researcher Miguel Nicolelis who have implanted sensors that enable rats to “touch” and respond to infrared light.
Combining clothing with computational capabilities immediately triggers people’s imaginations. The possibilities seem immense but going a bit deeper one soon realises that the actual implications of combining the two mediums go beyond just integrating electronic devices into wearable artefacts.
