First Tetris… then what? [Read More]
Summary… * Machine-Made
In layman's terms, researchers from the University of Washington and Carnegie Mellon University figured out a way to connect three brains (still attached to their human hosts!)
The team used "electroencephalograms" (EEGs) to record electric impulses from two human brains and "transcranial magnetic stimulation" (TMS) to deliver information to a third brain.
The end result: an interface that allowed three human subjects to collaborate and solve Tetris problems using brain-to-brain communication.
The two "senders" could see the game of Tetris being played, the "receiver" could not.
The goal: send a message telling the receiver to either rotate or not rotate the Tetris piece, depending on how the game was going.
