The Future of Reality – Controlling Objects With Your Mind

This video from TED demonstrates new technology being developed where a human can interact with devices to control objects simply by thinking about them.  On the one hand, a very exciting development, especially when it comes to supporting children with physical disabilities.  On the other, I can’t help to feel how much this resembles the dystopian societies described in science fiction – in this case, the movie The Matrix.  While watching this, I felt, “…a bit like Alice going down the rabbit hole…”.  Take the red pill if you dare and watch what could be the future of learning.
