The <off topic> thread


Recommended Posts

On one hand: Super-cool! Changes the face of movies!

On the other hand: Scary. Can you say "Thought Police"?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Even better, some people invented a machine that can help blind people see. It consists of a camera, a cable, and a little plate placed on the tongue that sends electronic signals to the brain. They use the tongue because it has so many nerves in it. It's only in black and white at the moment though.

and then, you'll need anti virus systems xD

and then there'll be an evil dark lord that has no life and has hacked a whole civilisation, and now theyre his evil minions, and then everyone gets brainwashed, and then randomly, chuck norris comes and roundhouses the evil dark lord back into time

Hmm, I find this cool and horrifying at the same time. Its kinda cool that it brings the idea of the "mental photograph" into reality, but it kinda means that a brain is just as hackable as a computer :|

how would they (and could they) change your thoughts, though? If there's no way to do that, your thoughts, while unsafe from prying people, would at least be your own.

Coincidentally I find this to be similar to a certain anime I saw in which delusions became reality just by transmitting a thought to the brain. What a coincidence :lol:

Or they could shoot you for having opinions they don't like...
