Hi, what are you looking for?


Can YOUR BRAIN Be Hacked?

We are living in an increasingly technological time and while I appreciate all the advancements that science and technology has made in the last few decades, I’m not afraid to admit that as we get closer to computer implantation, I’m seriously considering diving into a Luddite-lifestyle and calling it a day.

Think I’m overacting a bit?

Let’s face it, we have already made major inroads into the areas of melding neuroscience and technology (think cochlear implants and hooking paraplegics up to computers in order to communicate) so it’s only a matter of time before someone gets a hankering to rewire our brains via a computer, and force us to fight in world domination plots or participate in musical theater.

Now, we might be a quarter century away from this future, and at that point I will be too old to be of any use to a mad scientist, but that doesn’t mean I’m comfortable with the idea of people messing with humanity’s noggin.

Maybe the following video by AsapSCIENCE will shine some light on all this future brain hacking stuff that will settle my fears (I really don’t want to perform in musical theater). Or maybe it’ll keep me up at night…who knows?

Either way, we’re probably going to have to deal with a whole lotta pop-up ads in our eyeballs soon enough.

Video after the break.
