Wars are not always resolved amid shootings and deafening bombardments. There are times when strategy is the main weapon of combatants, who need to invade enemy bases or territories without being noticed. In such cases, sign language is the most effective mode of communication. But what would be even better? Only telepathy.
For the US Army is investing about $6 million for the biomedical department of Gerwin Schalk. The doctor is researching ways to create devices that can read the mind of who is using it and then pass on the signals to the decoder that is with the other person.
These emitters and receivers can be installed in the soldiers’ helmets, making combatants able to communicate without having to make sounds. That is, it is the “telepathy” produced by military technology.
