New Technology Could Display Your Dreams on Screen

A research team at the ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories in Japan has successfully displayed simple images produced in the human brain on a computer screen. Dream recorder anyone?

In a nutshell, the device converts electrical signals sent to the visual cortex into images that can be viewed on a computer screen. In their experiment, they showed test subjects the six letters in the word neuron and succeeded in reconstructing the word on screen by measuring their brain activity. As the technology progresses, it could be possible to "see" what people are thinking, what they dream about and record it for posterity. What do you think? Would that be awesome or scary as hell?

The story is too old to be commented.

So if I have a dream about killing my boss in a particular way, and say I told my best bud the dream, then he kills the boss and they find my recorded dream showing me killing him, I don't think that would work out too good for me...
