(Newser) – A huge breakthrough in mind-control technology. You heard me right. Two researchers at University of Washington were able to wire up their brains in order to play video games. Dr. Rajesh Rao had his brain wired up to control Dr. Andrea Stocco’s hand—from across campus. Rao was watching a video game, and thought about pressing a button to fire a cannon on the screen. Stocco wasn’t watching the game, but his hand moved to press the button and fire the cannon at the right moment anyway.
