Submission + - Chilean Company Promises Objects from Thought (

seanellis writes: A small Chilean startup is promising the ability to create objects by mere thought. It seems impossible at first glance, but ThinkerThing, set up by ex-patriot Yorkshireman Bryan Salt, uses neural interfaces to guide the evolution of 3D designs. Its first full-scale project, the Monster Dreamer, allows children to design fantastical monster toys by the power of thought, which will then be printed out as real 3D models. All of this is, as usual, assuming that they can get the funding.

I interviewed Bryan for the Pod Delusion podcast earlier this month.

Without life, Biology itself would be impossible.
