Scientists extract images directly from brain

Pink Tentacle reports that researchers at Japan's ATR Computational Neuroscience Laboratories have developed a system that can "reconstruct the images inside a person's mind and display them on a computer monitor."

This is incredibly exciting news. I'm reminded of the "Until the End of the World," a powerful science fiction film that anticipates a technology that can extract images from dreams.

I dunno, why would I need something that shows me what I'm thinking? I know what I'm thinking.

On the other hand, we might be able to record movies we imagine in our heads. :D But it seems the technologie is still a few steps away from that... :/
