The “Science-fiction future” isn’t waiting for us, it’s coming after us

Two advances that make cyborgs–and possibly “The Matrix” — more likely…

Another advance in electronic telepathy. “Welcome to the future: Scientists can now peer inside the brain and reconstruct videos of what a person has seen, based only on their brain activity. The reconstructed videos could be seen as a primitive — and somewhat blurry — form of mind reading…”

AND:


“Scientists at University of Washington have built a novel transistor that uses protons, opening the door to a new class of bio-compatible solid-state devices that can potentially communicate directly with living things.”

Could be the breakthrough that makes true cyborgian interfacing possible between human tissue and advanced electronics.
