ARLINGTON, Va. – DARPA, the Department of Defense's research arm, is paying scientists to invent ways to read soldiers' minds instantly using tools like genetic engineering of the human brain, nanotechnology and infrared beams. Live Science reports. Continue reading original article

The Military & Aerospace Electronics take:

23 May 2019 -- The end goal? Mind-controlled weapons like swarms of drones that someone sends to the skies with a single thought or the ability to beam images from one brain to another.

This week, DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that six teams will receive funding under the Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3) program to link human brains and machines.

Participants are tasked with developing technology that will provide a non-surgical two-way channel for rapid and seamless communication between the human brain and machines.
