An Actual Working Mind Probe

Jason Kottke, writing for kottke.org:

"the breakthrough paves the way for reproducing the movies inside our heads that no one else sees, such as dreams and memories". First time travelling neutrinos and now this...what a time to be alive."

A functional MRI hooked to a machine that associates brain activity with visual images learns to reconstruct those images. This could get creepy, quickly.
