Imagine being able to control others using only your thoughts! If what Harvard scientists have achieved in the lab ever gets commercialized into the mainstream, how humans interact and engage with each other could forever be changed.
In a nutshell, “researchers at Harvard University have created the first noninvasive brain-to-brain interface (BBI) between a human… and a rat.
