Mind Reading (Neural Decoding) Goes Mainstream

December 6, 2009 Leave a comment

For the past two months I’ve been running a large project for the world’s largest provider of higher education and have not really had a lot of time to post.

During that time I kept seeing signs of what I call the start of the human-machine convergence.  Yes, I know there are precedents for this and these are not the “true first signs”.

I’m interested for another reason, the way it is being marketed.  For some reason it’s being commercialize this holiday season.  Several “toys” are being promoted to consumers that allow brain reading to control objects in front of you.

Mattel and StarWars Science are both offering these toys at your local Walmart or Target.  But good luck finding them, even with a $100+ price tag they appear to have sold out.

I don’t have the time to post all of my thoughts, and came across this article below that sums up what I was missing above.  Have fun and enjoy the read, let me know your thoughts too!

Google Holiday Logos & The World’s Celebrations

Cultures, People, Google Logos, World's Celebrations

I’ve been a fan of the Google logo directory for a few years now.

http://www.google.com/logos/logos09-1.html

This morning I was just reviewing the new logos for the last year when something hit me.  I’ve been visiting this site because it shows creativity and imagination with each cool design.   But, I also love it because it reminds me that we live in a global society.  A fact this is sometimes easy to forget when you are managing all your “life responsibilities”.

Each culture has their own traditions and holidays represented on these pages.  Scrolling through the logos and reading each holiday  is a quick way to feel just a little bit more connected with all the other folks out there beyond our cubicles or homes.

Go visit and let me know what you think.
