Learning on a New Level

Remember The Matrix? That awesome movie trilogy that starred Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, where a sentient machine had conquered planet earth? Well, there is something that took place in the movie that’s being worked on for real life usage. Now don’t worry, there aren’t any machines-turning-sentinent happening right now (that I know of!). I’m talking about how the protagonists in the movie were able to download knowledge and skills directly to their brains in a near-instant. Check out this scene from The Matrix to refresh your memory:

Seems far-fetched? Not really, because Researchers at HRL Laboratories are working on technology to do exactly that! They are literally working on technology to help stimulate and program your brain to be able to perform a set of skills. Sounds out of this world, right?! I agree! I’m simply amazed at how technology is advancing!
