2.18: Gateway to the Stars
Don't Touch Her, She's a Real Live Wire
This week, we recap, review, and analyze Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam (機動戦士Ζガンダム) episode 17 - Hong Kong City (ホンコン・シティ), discuss our first impressions, and provide commentary and research on Hong Kong's history and brain-computer interfaces.
- Explanation of crown colonies.
- Alvien Lucier's brain-performed "Music For Solo Performer" (1965)
- Wikipedia page on brain-computer interfaces.
- Tragic end to the vision restoration implant experiment.
- Article on the ethical considerations of brain-computer interfaces.
- Research on using a brain-computer interface to 'extract' information from an unwitting subject's mind:
