Ok, so we have not reached the Singularity quite yet. But this is the week that researchers announced they’ve found the path that will let them watch the thoughts of a comatose patient, or play dreams on YouTube. And a separate group of researchers have found a way to build transistors that manipulate protons, breaking through the barriers that prevented electrical devices from communicating directly with human cells, in their language.

First, brain pictures.

Researchers at the University of California used magnetic resonance imaging to watch the visual stimuli that study subjects experienced as they watched movie trailers. (Though the decision to subject innocent victims to the Steve Martin remake of “The Pink Panther” seems like one that could result in sanctions if not criminal charges.)

The development “paves the way for reproducing the movies inside our heads that no one else sees, such as dreams and memories, according to researchers.”

The university’s press office announced that the breakthrough could result – years from now – in major advances in medical treatment.
