Dr. Cristopher James from the University of Southampton achieved for the first time Brain-to-brain communication.
For his experiment one person using Brain-Computer-Interface (BCI) transmitted thoughts, as a series of binary digits, over the internet to another person. The second person was attached also to an EEG. The PC would pick up the stream of binary digits and flash a LED lamp at two different frequencies, one for zero and one for one. The pattern of the flashing LEDS is too subtle to be picked up by the second person, but it is picked up by electrodes measuring the visual cortex of the recipient.
Here is Dr James’ BCI experiment to watch.
As Dr. James said, B2B can be beneficial to people with severe debilitating muscle wasting diseases or with “locked-in” syndrome.
