Scientists have developed an implant that will let nerves re-grow onto terminals. And now we bring you: A Phantom Recorder, that stores and plays back physical sensations for amputees.

Cohen’s concept is based on the increasingly un-out-there idea of brain/machine interfaces,  in which the human nervous system is directly linked in a feedback loop  with an electronic device. The scientists who inspired Cohen developed  an implant that will let nerves associated with a missing limb re-grow  onto terminals which can register their electrical activity and control  assistive devices or prosthetics.
Could we use this technology to record illusions of the mind?

The appropriate response would be: !

    I’m not sure I’d want this… an illusion recorder? Of my mind? Scary.
