Sony Invention Beams Sights, Sounds Into Brain
LONDON (Reuters) - If you think video games are engrossing now, just wait: PlayStation maker Sony Corp (SNE.N). has been granted a patent for beaming sensory information directly into the brain.


'The pulsed ultrasonic signal alters the neural timing in the cortex,' the patent states. 'No invasive surgery is needed to assist a person, such as a blind person, to view live and/or recorded images or hear sounds.'


A Sony Electronics spokeswoman told the magazine that no experiments had been conducted, and that the patent 'was based on an inspiration that this may someday be the direction that technology will take us.'

Doesn't take much to get a patent these days, does it?
