The Technology That Stares At Goats

A 60 Minutes segment on real mind reading. I mentioned this in a post a while back, but now a link exists (via h+ Magazine) to the actual video.


From the last post I mentioned this in:
A few nights ago, 60 Minutes had a piece (I only caught the last minute or so) about a machine that can essentially give you an MRI from afar. Supposedly, they just aim this thing at your head and the users get a snapshot of your brain activity. The possibilities are endless, but they're mainly talking about putting them in airports to catch terrorists. Of course, such practices are wholly interpretive and far from being scientific, but that hasn't ever stopped shitheads from using lie detectors, handwriting analysis, and Freudian psychology in supposedly professional settings.
