Touching IIN enabled smartphone to forehead will now transfer digital content directly to brain

Mumbai: Are you a college student who feels sufficiently lazy to cram thousands of pages of textbooks even in last few hours before exam? Do you have toddlers who hate to identify animal by names or fail to learn hundreds of rhymes? Well, IIN may finally have an elegant solution for you.

A team of research scientists at Idea Innovation and Research (IIR) Centre have developed a cutting edge tech-feature that will allow users to directly transfer digital content such as movies, videos, high definition images and audio-books etc. to their brains using their IIN enabled phones. The IIN users in near future will just have to touch the phone to their forehead and close their eyes as if praying and any content as large as 1 GB will be transferred to the brain within seconds. This feature is reportedly being called IIN Enabled Content Replenishment (IIN-ENCORE).

Senior research analyst at IIR-Centre Dr. Digvijay Gandhi provided further details to reporters on this hi-tech feature.

“The original thought behind IIN-ENCORE came to one of us while watching the IIN advertisements. Those advertisements clearly tell us that people are continuously trying to bang their foreheads to the phones after they are not able to learn anything despite hours of web surfing on their mobile networks. Hence we decided to turn this head-banging activity into a data transfer exercise, which will cut down the learning effort as well as the user frustration. Hence we started working on a project where in we planned to reconfigure the IIN networks to enable direct content transfer to brain, and now this feature is almost ready,” he said.

Providing further details Dr. Gandhi said, “Let me now talk about how exactly this feature will work. Once available in the android market this IIN-ENCORE could easily be downloaded and installed. It can then be switched ON in the “network settings” section of the phone. Once you switch the feature ON and the touch the phone to your forehead, the IIN network will generate certain magnetic impulses. These impulses will then convert any webpage content on the phone into small but powerful electrical signals. These powerful signals will then be sent directly through your forehead to the frontal lobe, which is an area of the brain sitting right behind the forehead at the front of each cerebral hemisphere. Frontal lobe is just like a short-term memory storage disk. Once the data transfer is complete user will have access to all the data inside his or her brain that too inside their active short term memory for easy access and use. So now say bye to learning, and start IIN-Encoring.”

Another researcher Dr. Rahul Singh who has worked very closely with the project team on IIN-ENCORE gave a teaser trailer about another hi-tech feature which the team is working on.

“We have long believed that reality is nothing but electrical signals interpreted by our brain. And the same electrical signals form the basis for ENCORE feature. Consequently we are working on taking it to the next level. Our next feature will be called ENCORE-TOOTH an advanced version of Bluetooth, using which people would be able to interact with each other without speaking. This feature would work over short distance and people’s thoughts would be transferred using brainwaves riding on IIN’s electrical signals. This feature is still in design phase and we will be providing more details on this shortly,” Dr. Singh concluded with a mysterious smile.
