Apparatus for electronic telepathy develops by DARPA - VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

Американское агентство DARPA работает над технологией, которая заставит смарт-очки и гарнитуры дополненной реальности выглядеть прошлым веком: это импланты, которые дадут людям зрение Терминатора.
To date, researchers DARPA working on a device known as a "cortical modem", which is built directly into the DNA of the human visual cortex and its. Such a device can not only solve the problem of blindness or low vision, but also can generate a built HUD-display, which will be located directly in front of the eyes of man.

Cortical modem was presented the project leader Philip Alveda during a recent biotechnology conference held in Silicon Valley. Implant creates a projection augmented reality, which is superimposed on the natural vision and does not require special glasses or helmets. The project is based on the concepts Alvedy optogenetics, which allow you to control individual cells inside living tissue with light. In the human brain introduces a special light-sensitive proteins that can be used purposefully to enable or disable individual neurons.

The main goal of treatment is optogenetics neurological diseases, and cortical modem can serve this purpose, restoring sight to the blind or visually impaired people. To date, DARPA plans to use a tiny device the size of a couple of coins worth $ 10, which is able to generate a HUD-display approximately the same screen LED clock alarm clock.

"Cortical modem completely bypasses the visual sensory system and delivers data directly into the visual cortex, allowing you to generate a kind of virtual layer overlaid on the real world," wrote conference participant Peter Rothman from the magazine «Humanity + Magazine». "Moreover, optogeneticheskaya technology allows both read and write information. Thus, we can imagine a device through which virtual objects can be perceived fully integrated into our visible world. "

But the possibility of such devices do not end there, says Rothman. Cortical modem can potentially make a reality telepathy and telekinesis email as well - the famous neurointerfaces than once described science fiction writers. Of course, before that to go still a long way, since its current form cortical modem is rather "rough" device, says Rothman.

"This technology will give us an augmented reality display HD in the near future. Current scientific approach to this method is based on optogenetics, and therefore requires genetic changes in the neurons of the brain, "says the journalist. "The consequences of such health effects are not yet known, and research is currently limited to work with animals. In particular, the conference discussed the work in real time with the brain-fish zebrafish, containing about 85,000 neurons. "
