This is amazing. Using a whole bunch of YouTube videos as reference material, UC Berkeley scientists were able to capture the visual activity in a human brain and reconstruct it using short video clips that a computer program identified as being similar to what the human was visualizing in his head. This is surreal. The implications of this tech would be huge and, in a way, frightening. This is truly ground-breaking stuff.
Imagine that. Capturing your visual memories, your dreams, the wild ramblings of your imagination into a video that you and others can watch with your own eyes…. Perhaps one day you would be able to go to sleep wearing a flexible band labeled Sony Dreamcam around your skull.
