The United States Army hopes to read the minds of its soldiers by monitoring brain activity and body responses

A new system designed to aid soldiers will use neuro-physiological sensors to help monitor the brain activity of U.S. Army personnel out in the field.  Some of the things measured and recorded include the heart rate and brain activity of the soldiers.  Once the data has been processed, the system will hopefully influence what a soldier does in certain situations.

The U.S. Army, Honeywell and the Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) are working on the new wireless technology that will be integrated into the Army's Future Force Warrior program.

As of today, what we know about our brain is minimal. You may think our neuroscience is advanced enough to fully understand the human brain. But we dont.

The mind reading project will only be able to detect simple patterns such as anger, fear or happiness. Or simply, it will end up being a lie detector.

Maybe in 20 years, we will have REAL mind reading machines, but not today.
