Something that caught my eye

Well for the past couple of days i’ve been posting more about stuff i see or rather read!!!!

so here’s what i spied with my little eye today.

Apparently Sony ,The Entertainment Giant submitted a patent applicationfor technology that could actually beam video games directly into our brains .Daeja woo !Doesnt that remind you of the Matrix???

The U.S. patent, granted to Sony researcher Thomas Dawson, describes a technique for aiming ultrasonic pulses at specific areas of the brain to induce ‘sensory experiences’ such as smells, sounds and images.
‘The pulsed ultrasonic signal alters the neural timing in the cortex,’ the patent states.”

Although the work is still speculative as no experiments have been conducted so far.The Device they have in mind is a non-invasive devices that throws Ultrasound waves at your brain.If the waves are targeted at the Sense centres they might be able to get the required result. Might be even make blind people see!!!

But im not too sure of the after effects of this cause a Physics sir[Prof.G.G.Prabhu] had asked us “why we Dont Ultrasound the brain???? ” Well naturally that had stumped us all[it was during a model making competition for biology at college,He was a judge].

Well He didn’t give us the answer then .Finally a couple of weeks later when i met him i asked him”why??“And this is what he replied,”Apparently The ultrasound waves are absorbed by the calcium in the bones.,here the skull.thus overheating the bones and might be even frying the surrounding tissues!!! so it isn’t used and its also the reason why it’s used for only the abdominal region.(not much bones).

Well that answered us …but now if Sony actually does use these ultrasound waves then won’t they be absorbed by the skull??? thus posing a health hazard to the compulsive gamers who are addicted to gaming. But then i don’t actually know what they will actually be i could be wrong on assuming things.Any way they would find a good way around it..we won’t have to worry cause all that is too ahead in the (not to far)future.
