Sony patents beaming sights and sounds into your brain

Hastening the day that we all become batteries for powering our robotic overlords, Sony has patented beaming senses into the human brain, according to this story at Yahoo News. Now all the machines need to do is rise up, stick us in a pod, and beam images into our eyes onfa mundane reality while sapping our bodies of electricity. Yay Sony!

You know, sights from a game might be cool to have beamed into your brain. However, I’ve been addicted to… err… playing a lot of World of Warcraft recently. Visuals are one thing, but honestly, I really don’t want to smell an orc or a troll, especially after I have bludgeoned the thing to death.


  1. I read the article closely but could find no mention of whether tin foil hats worked or did not work to block the waves.

  2. There’s a group here at U.Wisc. that transmits information to an electrotactile array placed under the tongue! (…)

    I should have reported this when I found out, but at the time, I was trying to figure out if they were hiring! (

  3. …Forgot to mention, they call the thing a "BrainPort", and the commercial contact is a guy named Bob Beckman. Suppose that’s an alias for Monty Meekman? (I couldn’t make this up if I tried.)
