Sony Patents Mind Control?

Sony has patented a new technology that could transmit smells, tastes and perhaps even the feel of things directly into your brain. The technique is non-invasive. It uses pulses of ultrasound aimed at the head to modify firing patterns in specific parts of the brain. This creates "sensory experiences" ranging from moving images to tastes and sounds. It could also give blind or deaf people a way to see or hear. While few details have been released, independent experts say that what they have seen is at least plausible.
