For years, people have lamented over not being able to experience instant learning like Neo does in "The Matrix." Plug in and learn kung fu in minutes? Yes please. But now that might be possible thanks to HRL Laboratories. Tech Crunch reports that " when you use transcranial direct current stimulation to send the brain activity of commercial and military pilots into the heads of novice pilots, subjects can essentially learn to fly in a realistic flight simulator." Voila, instant learning.

So far the creators foresee instant learning being used in the realms of language, driving and even SAT prep, but perhaps in the near future it can be used for everything. Then maybe schools will be obsolete.
