and now ... Smart Binoculars!Military binoculars may soon get information directly from the brains of the soldiers using them. With the idea that that the brain absorbs and assesses more visual information than it lets on - and that it could make more sense out of whats visible through high-power binoculars if it stopped filtering that information - the Pentagon has awarded contracts to two firms to develop brainwave-aided binoculars. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is betting that intelligent binoculars can tap into the brains ability to spot patterns and movement and help soldiers detect threats from miles farther away than they can with traditional binoculars. Electrodes on the scalp inside a helmet will record the users brain activity as it processes information about high-resolution images produced by wide-angle military binoculars. Those responses will train the binoculars over time to recognize threats. "You need to present the soldier with many images and then use the persons brain to figure out what is of interest," best telescope under 300 dollars here , CEO of Sensics, Inc., a Baltimore-based maker of panoramic head-mounted displays. Paul Hasler, an associate professor of engineering at Georgia Tech, described the technology as an example of "neuromorphic" engineering that uses hardware and software to emulate human intelligence. "You would see a certain picture in your field of view, but the device would actually be looking over a much wider space - and if it found something interesting it would present you with that picture as well," Hasler said.
