Some of the topics discussed this time include: (1) Researchers at the MIT Media Lab have now created a wearable device (called the “AlterEgo” system) that picks up neuromuscular signals in the face and jaw and feeds them to a machine-learning system that can associate the signals with specific words. (2) A system that’s under development that uses holographic projection to activate or deactivate brain activity, thereby allowing it to “edit the sensations we feel, paste in our brain pictures that we never saw, cut out unwanted pain, or insert nonexistent scents into memory.” (3) A 3-in-1 adaptive USB Flash drive. (4) A handy Garmin app for golfers. (5) The Electronic Yodelling Pickle, plus other amazing topics.
