Sony Patents Theoretical Matrix Technology

As reported by New Scientist, Sony has been granted a theoretical patent on technology that will use ultrasonic waves to transmit sensory data directly to a human brain. People are comparing it to The Matrix, but the science, apparently, is sound. Niels Birbaumer, a pioneering German neuroscientist in the field of Brain-Computer Interfaces, called the idea "plausible". Birbaumer invented a device in the early 1990's that could be controlled by the power of positive and negative "slow-waves" emitted by subjects' brains.
