Proof of Concept: The Brain To Brain Internet

YouTube link.

This is a BCI experiment whereby one person uses BCI to transmit a series of digits over the internet to another person whos computer receives the digits and transmits them to the second users through flashing an LED array. The encoded information is extracted from the brain activity of the second user.

This shows true brain-to-brain activity. This is done as a proof of concept – to show that B2B *is* possible – which it is, as we show here.

It doesn’t look particularly glamourous but what they’ve done is pretty amazing.

The video explains it better.
