Sony Patents a Brain Wave
Techtree News Staff
April 07, 2005


Sony has been reported to have acquired a patent for an idea to
transmit data directly into the brain, with the goal of enabling a person to
see movies and play video games in which they smell, taste and perhaps even
feel things.

According to the report, the patent is based only on a theory, but not
on any invention that marks the first step towards a real-life Matrix.



The patent describes a device that fires ultrasound pulses at the head
to modify the firing patterns of neurons in targeted parts of the brain.
Aiming to create sensory experiences ranging from moving images to tastes
and sounds.

The report also states that it was denied an interview with the
inventor, who is based at a Sony office in San Diego, California. Though
Sony Electronics spokeswoman Elizabeth Boukis, said the work was a prophetic
invention and no experiments at all had been done on it. She added that it
was based on an inspiration which may someday be the direction that
technology will take us.

The technique would be entirely non-invasive and will not use brain
implants or other surgery. Experts said that they did not dismiss the idea
out of hand, though they also expressed concern about the proposed method's
long-term safety.

This technology hopes to open up a new dimension to users of
Playstation consoles making game play even more immersive.

Also the basis of the plot for the 1983 film "Brainstorm" staring
Christopher Walken & Natalie Wood's last screen performance. Excelent
special effects for its day.

How about wigs that send brain waves
and transmit to stuffed pellicans
in department stores. They will
store your thoughts like "cookies"
and tailor fit future brain wave
messages accordingly.

Haha!, someone else who has seen it. A seriously unshown film. TCM in the Uk
plays it often though. The death sequence near the end is top quality
psychodelia, on par with, if not better than the 2001 end sequence. OT, but
what the hell. Sydney or the bush!
