Game over man, game over!!(Pentagon makes mind reading computer)

Those of us here who can read mind don't(Well hopefully) go reading everyone they meet minds. Well guess what, the pentagon has invented mind reading technology. You can check it out here: http://blog.wired.com/defense/2008/0...-continue.html
So yeah, we're all screwed. All your personal information will no longer be so personal. It is not that advanced so far but it most likely will soon. Yeah, we're all screwed.

Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon about to eat your face

Hyperbole is for the paranoid.

Yes, I feel threatened by any device that requires my head to be shaved and covered with little tiny sensors. lol

If something was developed that could seriously read your mind from afar, that would be a problem. Then again, I hardly think information that such a device existing would ever be released. 1984 anyone?

I think people seriously underestimate the complexity of this process, and the military is trying to increase fighter pilots' reaction time by hooking the controls directly to their mind, so they go where they think instead of having to move their hands. There are all sorts of applications for this technology. Think Cyberpunk. :D

something already exists that can read minds from miles and miles away, it's called our brain. it's just a matter of if anyone wants to use it or not.

Nobody wants to lose it tho....

Anyway, there is a chance that if this is released publicly already, that some sector of the gov. prob. has a better (read:wireless) version.

Not too much chance, tho.
