New Revolutionary Wearable Device Can Adjust Your Mindset in a Few Minutes

By | October 22nd, 2015|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Human Brain, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , , |

I have ALWAYS been uneasy about adjusting my state of consciousness via external means, yet even I’m enthusiastic about the social implications of the new “Thync” wearable technology. Some tech reviewers have been comparing its ambition-enhancing or emotionally centering effects to those of coffee or marijuana, but without the downsides. Its effects are definitely more [...]

Swiss Scientists Control Genes with the Power of Mind

Researchers from Switzerland have developed an innovative gene regulation device operated via brain waves. Researchers led by Martin Fussenegger, biotechnology and biomechanics professor of the Department of Biosystems at Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, developed a gene network that uses brain waves to control gene expression, or the conversion of genes into proteins. The [...]

5 Technologies That Have Made It Possible to Read People’s Minds

The ability to read people’s minds still belongs to science fiction, but, in fact, neuroscience has already taken tangible steps toward making it a reality. Here are some of the recent technological advances that allowed researchers to “crack” the human mind. 1. Extracting words directly from the human brain Neuroscientists at the University of California, [...]

5 Incredible Medical Technologies Available Today

By | June 6th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Medicine & Genetics, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , |

While everyone marvels over Internet and mobile device technology, medical breakthroughs are happening nearly as fast. In fact, it’s quite common for most technologies to be adapted to service other practical functions in various devices. It’s a cohesive development as one improvement for a specific use is augmented to serve another in a completely unrelated field of study. How has this technology improved the medical industry? […]

10 Most Expected Science and Technology Advances in 2014

New Scientist magazine published a series of articles about the 10 major events that are likely to happen in the field of science and technology in the coming year. Space is getting closer In 2014, two spacecraft that will help people finally reach Mars will be tested. In September, NASA will launch spacecraft Orion, designed for deep space missions, in a 4-hour flight around the Earth. Also next year the first launch of the rocket Falcon Heavy, developed by a private company SpaceX, will take place. It is able to […]

New Mind-reading Device Lets You Type with Your Mind

By | July 9th, 2013|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , |

Researchers at the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience of the Maastricht University (Netherlands) developed a revolutionary new technology that allows any user to type words and whole phrases (letter by letter) in real time just by thinking of them. The system makes use of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in order to analyze the hemodynamic responses of the brain caused by mental images corresponding to each letter of the alphabet, and these in their turn to different fMRI signals. To make the system work correctly, the patient first should adjust it to his brain activity by looking at the letters on the screen and […]

Electronic Telepathy and Telekinesis Could Become Reality Thanks to Temporary Tattoos

By | April 5th, 2013|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , , , , |

Scientists say that we may soon be able to control flying drones with our minds, and communicate almost telepathically via smart phones, thanks to temporary electronic tattoos. Todd Coleman, associate professor of bioengineering at the University of California, is developing non-invasive means to control electronics with the mind – a technique that can be used by practically anybody. Controlling machines by thought alone is no longer strictly the domain of science fiction. In recent years, brain implants have given people the ability to control robots with their thoughts, giving hope that one day we will be able to overcome the disadvantages of serious injury and disability with the help of bionic limbs or mechanical exoskeletons. But brain implants are an invasive technology, and perhaps should only be used in people who need them for medical reasons. Instead, Coleman and his team are developing flexible wireless chips that read brain activity, which can be placed on the hand in the form of a temporary tattoo. […]

Moving objects with the mind becomes possible

By | November 25th, 2012|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , , |

If you are sure that only heroes of science fiction movies are able to move objects by the power of thought, it is time to get rid of this illusion. Very recently scientists of the ATR company in the Japanese city of Kyoto invented a sophisticated device that allows to influence objects with the mind at a distance. According to the ATR, the production of this device called Network Brain Machine Interface is expected to start by 2020. This is a kind of head cover, equipped with sensitive cables which record the smallest variations in the circulatory system and react to stimuli in the brain. […]
