All in hot pursuit of the Oculus Rift.

And now Facebook of all companies has purchased Oculus for 2 billion.

VR is no doubt in our collective futures. Perhaps not as an audio/visual device (still too gimmicky really), but once we have direct mind connections, well, you might watch MindScans to see the can of worms that will open!

Trailers will never be the same...

Genome Pioneer, X Prize Founder Tackle Aging

Craig Venter, who managed to make science both lucrative and glamorous with his pioneering approach to gene sequencing and synthetic biology, is taking on a new venture: aging...

...He also took a crack at creating artificial life...

...The new company doesn’t aim to extend human life so much as to help keep people healthy as they get older.

“The challenge is when you live into your 80s, 90s, to 100, living in a way that is decrepit and old is of zero value,” Diamandis said...

Doesn't this sound a heck of a lot like Alliance Digital Studios' KNOWLEDGE? We don't know what's creepier--the name of this new company "Human Longevity Inc." (the fictional company in KNOWLEGE is Gen-Lon--short for Genetic Longevity Inc.) or that this guy looks like an older version of our very own Production Manager, David Kennedy. {Cue Twilight Zone music.}

Look Ma, No Hands! Mind-Controlled Helicopter Flies on Brainwaves

It may seem like science fiction, but researchers are experimenting with a mind-controlled device that enables users to fly a model helicopter with only their thoughts.

Researchers at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis created a brain-computer interface — a system that allows the brain to communicate directly with an external device...

Sound familiar?

Brain Area for Decision-Making and Planning is “Uniquely Human"

Star Trek may have told us that space is humanity’s final frontier, but plenty of uncharted hinterland remains unexplored within the human brain. And scientists at Oxford University recently discovered an area of the brain that contributes to make humans, well, human.

The walnut-sized area, nestled within the frontal cortex, is called the lateral frontal pole. It’s responsible for planning and decision-making and, according to the new findings, has no equivalent in the monkey brain. Researchers thus believe this brain region might be responsible for humans’ upper hand in tasks that require strategic planning, decision-making and multitasking...
