Device for recording and translating brain impulses to restore vision of the blind person. Also used for recording the dreams. telexperience technology that is adapted to record dreams so that they can be shared with others or watched on a video display. In the world of the film, the technology is new and experimental, and is handled in the inventor’s laboratory with complicated electronic equipment. After having first recorded an event with a special binocular, brainwave-reading camera, the subject must rewatch the recording and remember the event. During this rewatching, the subject’s brainwaves are being recorded for later transmission. The subject has electrodes taped to his or her temples and lies back in a curved headrest with an electronic grid lining it.
