Mind-Reading Computer Takes Images Straight out of Your Brain

Japanese scientists at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Labs have successfully built a machine that can read your mind - or at least getting images straight from your brain:

A Japanese research team has revealed it had created a technology that could eventually display on a computer screen what people have on their minds, such as dreams.

Researchers at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories succeeded in processing and displaying images directly from the human brain, they said in a study unveiled ahead of publication in the US magazine Neuron.

While the team for now has managed to reproduce only simple images from the brain, they said the technology could eventually be used to figure out dreams and other secrets inside people's minds.

Is all this device doing taking the signals traveling through the visual pathway and attempting to reproduce the image from the signals? That's what it looks like- it's not anywhere near reading thought if that's the case.

the device created is no really big deal.it utilizes image processing exclusively;however,that is only necessary for new image exposure recording.
there have been telepathic guided airplanes,cia programs,and brainwave frequency correlations to images in the early 1960's and prior.
hopefully,this device will work well also;but,it should be analyzed for image capture.the brainwaves do not generate images;but,instead,create waveforms that represent those images.
only the frontal lobe of the brain generates quasi-images.
