Sony Files Patent for "Brain Interface"
If the technology proves feasible, it would offer a wealth of possibilities for everything from recreation to healthcare to education. It would also open a Pandora's box of dangers and possible abuses. However, don't look for it on sale at your local electronics store anytime soon. By calling it a "prophetic invention," Sony stresses that the device "was based on an inspiration that this may someday be the direction that technology will take us." In other words, at this stage it's nothing more or less than a very cool idea.
