    The experiment was published online on August 3rd 2016 by the National Institutes of Health and in print on October 2016 by the Journal of Neural Engineering. The fact that the Daily Mail picked it up on April 1st appears coincidental.

    The reasons for developing the technology are good ones-to give people who have head or spinal cord injuries that have affected their ability to speak the ability to communicate using a brain-scanning devise.


    Give me $50, shuffle my tarot cards, and I can read your mind. That's all being a psychic mind-reader is about-asking the right questions and giving something rich in symbolism for your client to focus his or her answers upon. It's probably not 90% effective, more like 55-60%, but that's all it takes to convince most people.

    I used to. Not so much anymore. But it's more about reading people and how they react to the cards than the actual cards themselves. The cards just have images on them that people react to, both consciously and unconsciously.
