Can Mind Reading Technology Hack Your Brain??

A computer scientist at Oxford recently read the brainwaves of test subjects using a standard brainwave reader (EEG) and a video game controller!

So instead of celebrity phone hacking scandals, are we looking at celeb brain hacking?!

The study had participants look at numbers, names, logos and people.

The researchers were looking for something called a P300 response, a specific brainwave pattern that happens when someone relates to or recognizes something.

So they can't go in your brain and retrieve information, but they could do something like show you sets of numbers and see if any of them are familiar. Like how credit card numbers or a social security number might be familiar.

This is only the very beginning of the technology but it's kinda scary people can sort of read your mind already.

Let's hope they invent Magneto's helmet before this technology gets perfected. LOLz!
