    I'm curious how this actually works. If it's just stuff reconstructed from the area of the brain that processes visual input, it has a lot less implications than something that could somehow reconstruct what you're mentally picturing. Which is something that I doubt is possible to any but a very crude degree, especially since when I think I don't 'picture' anything most of the time.

    A device in the brain measures neural blood flow. That's all the info they will let me divulge.

    Great. Now watch the government/legal system use this in lieu of or in addition to lie detectors in order to know what citizens are thinking. One step for mankind, one step for Big Brother.

    I don't know, but science provided a computer for you to type that into.
