ET EXTRA: Mind Reading: No Longer Science Fiction

17 Jul

Image from Total Recall, inspired by the
Philip K. Dick short story, “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale.”

“A new company, Veritas Scientific, is developing a technology that promises to peek into a person’s brain to reveal some of their secrets. ‘The last realm of privacy is your mind,’ says Veritas CEO Eric Elbot. ‘This will invade that.'”

…”‘Certainly it’s a potential tool for evil,’ says Elbot. ‘If only the government has this device, it would be extremely dangerous.’”

from “The Mind-Reading Machine” by Celia Gorman, July 2012 ieee Spectrum
