It sounds like something from a science fiction film, but if Dr. Eric Leuthardt's findings are to be believed, we may be able to read eachother's minds by the year 2038!
The scientist says he expects it to work by having people implant chips into their brains which will give the brain computer like qualities.
"At the pace at which technology changes, it's not inconceivable to think that in a 20-year time frame, everything in a cell phone could be put into a grain of rice." he said
"That could be put into your head in a minimally invasive way, and would be able to perform the computations necessary to be a really effective brain-computer interface."
He admitted that although mind reading will be a large part of the interface, they are not 100% on how to make it work just yet... But they are convinced it will happen!
"We really don't know how to do it at this point. But it's also obvious to me that it is going to happen."
"And if and when that happens, our lives are going to change, and our lives are going to change in a way that is completely unprecedented."
Sounds pretty freaky right!? We'll have to wait and see how this pans out.
