A brain-to-brain communication device was able to send a coded message from someone in India to three people in France. The messages were simple one-word greetings like “hola” and “ciao” but were broadcasted directly to the receivers. The subjects had electrodes attached to their brains that were capable of converting electrical pulses from simple thought patterns into binary code that could be sent to another machine on the other end. The signal was then converted back into electrical impulses that produced coded flashes of light in the receivers’ peripheral vision. Right now, the technology is fairly crude and imperfect. However, scientists hope to one day enable people with difficulty speaking, like stroke victims, to communicate effectively.
