They're getting closer and closer to being able to read our minds and I'm not sure if I like it.
Imagine if it says everything he's thinking:
"That girl has the hottest ass- wait fuck did I say that out loud"
Well, if we're going to hear the unfiltered voice of someone's brain...
I think Hawking's is definitely the one we want to be listening to, otherwise we'll probably just lose faith in humanity all together.
This is great news, it would be awesome if we could "patch in" virtual nerves to control machines using our motor control centres.
Pretty amazing how far we've got in the past few years in neuroscience. They can already pretty much do what they are planning to do in the article with a functional MRI, I guess really now all it takes is to shrink down the technology so you don't have to be sat in a huge polo to do it.
Please god don't use Microsoft Sam as the synthesizer voice
I wonder what his actual voice sounded like.
Man, just imagine if Stephen Hawking never had ALS..
Once he goes, all we'll have left is Neil. What happens when he goes?!
You guys are overestimating him. His biggest contribution was the discovery of Hawking radiation, he hasn't done much more in later years. Sure he's smart, but he's probably not the smartest guy in the world, the only reason people identify him as that is because that's what media has portrayed him to be.
Wasn't there this thing a while back in japan that you would attatch to comma victims and find out what they where thinking? They could use that.
"So Mr. Hawkins, could you explain why the Higgs Boson is so important?"
"Oh for fucks sake, why are you people so RETARDED. Oops."
Let's face it; once Hawking's dead there's going to be a huge void to fill, and that prick up there is not the one to fill it. Truth be told, there are many brilliant people out there, some even as brilliant as Hawking himself but the fact is they don't get the attention and support they need to truly thrive and be known for their abilities. Once Hawking dies, I bet people will instantly start searching for the 'next Stephen Hawking'... Sucks but it's true.
