The Future of Brain-To-Brain Communication

Imagine that your brain communicates with someone else’s without you speaking, gesturing, or using any other part of your body to communicate with them. 

The first brain-to-brain telepathy-like communication between two participants via the Internet has been performed by University of Washington researchers. Researchers used a direct brain-to-brain connection to allow pairs of participants to play a 20 questions-style game by transmitting signals from one brain to the other over the Internet. The experiment is thought to be the first to show that two brains can be directly linked to allow one person to guess what’s on another person’s mind.
