From Jennifer Aniston in Your Brain To Brainwashing Gadgets

— December 14, 2008 — Tech
The human brain is a fascinating organ that is starting to get its fair share of attention in research and marketing.

I bet you didn’t know that your brain has a special Jennifer Aniston neuron that is dedicated to reacting to the famous Friends sitcom star who’s everywhere in the media this week thanks to her almost-nude GQ cover.

But that’s not all your brain is good for. New gadgets and designs utilize the brain for gaming, brain-inspired lamps, chairs that can actually change your thought, and virtual brainwashing gadgets that ensure you have a healthy happy lifestyle.
