Although the system is not perfect, scientists have been able to allow two humans to exchange messages telepathically. The article warns of the "ethical and sociological questions" that future brain-to-brain transmission will cause.

Four participants were recruited, ages 28 to 50, for the study. First, researchers used EEG to translate greetings, such as hola and ciao, into code. This was sent from a participant in Thiruvananthapuram, India to Strasbourg, France. There, a computer interface translated the message from code to words and implanted them into the receiver’s brain through light electrical stimulation. Participants didn’t report feeling anything in the process, and only saw flickers of light in their peripheral vision—but they did hear the message. Researchers then conducted a similar experiment in which thoughts were successfully transmitted from two participants, one in Spain and one in France.
