MIT Technology Review writes recently about how “scientists can read a bird’s brain and predict its next song“. Extrapolating, the scientists hope to be able to use this knowledge to further inventions that might help humans with disabilities communicate.
But it might also lead to the ability to text straight from our thoughts. This is just a part of what I wrote about in my sci-fi short story “A Penny for your Thoughts” in my e-book anthology “Science Fiction: Time Travel and Robots 2“, where a future technology also allows participants to communicate their feelings over a network connection. I just thought — pun intended — that if you are interested in this research, you might enjoy reading my story.
