From the Abstract “Conscious Brain-to-Brain Communication in Humans Using Non-Invasive Technologies” by Grau, Ginhoux, et al:
More fully developed, related implementations will open new research venues in cognitive, social and clinical neuroscience and the scientific study of consciousness. We envision that hyperinteraction technologies will eventually have a profound impact on the social structure of our civilization and raise important ethical issues.
This fascinating research is sort of Sookie Stackhouse meets the Vulcan Mind Meld. Intriguing and scary.
