Should There Really Be Experiments Like This?


BERKELEY, Calif. (CBS Seattle) – It sounds like something out of the movie “Johnny Mnemonic,” but scientists have successfully been able to “hack” a brain with a device that’s easily available on the open market.

Researchers from the University of California and University of Oxford in Geneva figured out a way to pluck sensitive information from a person’s head, such as PIN numbers and bank information.

I'm a man of science, but this kind of thing is a little frightening. Not only could they hack information out of our brains, but I don't want to be around when they're inserting pop-up ads for Texas Hold-Em sites into our noggins.
