Those never-ending research neuroscientists have done it again. They have developed a technique that allows them to look into your brain and tell you what you were intending to do next.

New experiments show it is possible for computers to detect, at a higher level of sophistication than ever before, people's intentions for the future, neuroscientists reported yesterday.

I want one of those computers. It would make a great office companion.

Yes but, when are they going to teach it to make and hand you a great cup of coffee?

I assuming if it's smart enough to know that I'm going to want a cup of coffee, then it can also figure out how to have it ready for me.

Psychologists have been able to do this for decades, computers are still way behind in this arena!

The brain is way to advanced to even attempt to analyse using a basic binary model machine.

Until we have true biological computers this subject is a nonsense. Once we have true biological computers we will most likely cease to exists as we know it today......thankfully I doubt I will still be above ground at that time :)

If they can build one that looks like Sophia Vergara, I'll take one as a wife.

Imagine, you won't even have to talk to your wife anymore. You just think about what you want and she reacts. That's better than a Stepford wife :)

Ok, I take one of those too! Maybe 2, just in case one shorts out.

I'll buy it - as long as they can get it down to wristwatch size.

really need it lately for all the times I walk into a room with a purpose and stop dead two feet inside the door... wondering what the hell I was coming in here for.

No but I did check him out, pretty interesting.

I can tell you what is going to happen but not exactly when it will happen.

I have been to this rock and this dimension many times before.

I was watching a TV special on the building of the World Trade Center with my dad when I was 12 in 1970. I turned to him and said "what fools, someone is going to knock that down someday, it might take 20 years but it will happen". He just laughed at me with his fatherly bravado.

It took them 30, fortuneatly he died a few years before.

The US will annex Mexico in the next 10 years through a natural progression of statehood.

Hef has at least 3 of those models! He knows that at least 2 of them short out on regular occasions!

Watch "The Girls Next Door" on E! and you will see the technology is far from perfection yet....maybe Hef will step upto 10 in the next year....to improve his chances ;)

How long is the cache? I need one for those times when I stop in the middle of the room trying to remember what I was planning to do next. :)

It exists already for years! You probably all have one at home : Your Mother!
They always now what you want to do, especially when you don't want anybody to now it.
I'm sure mothers have a sixt sense for it.
