While it’s no longer sci-fi, there probably won’t be any brain-to-brain collaboration tool vendors at IFMA or CoreNet events for some years yet. Still, the fact that this research team has already demonstrated that it can be done is pretty fascinating. 

Here’s the short story: Three people, in different locations, are collaborating to solve a Tetris-like game. Two can see the whole screen, one can only see part of it (not the critical part). Using EEGs to record brain signals and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to non-invasively deliver information to the two with full screen views lead the third player to the solution.
