ICT – First Week

Hi guys, as I mentioned to you before, I created this blog mainly for my ICT module, so here I will be talking a little about what I am doing in ICT class. Today I will talk about my first week.

On our first day we learned about the History of Computing. What exactly a computer is, what they do and how they evolved. We also learned about output devices and searched for futuristic output devices, which I thought it was fascinating. One output device that really got my attention was this “dream recording device” that I came across. The dream recording device – also known as oneirography – is a system capable of recording higher-levels of brain activity. Scientists are trying to develop this “system” so that in the future it could be used to extend our knowledge and understanding of how/why people dream and how dreams are created. It could then be used by professionals such as Psychologists and be used for further analysis to understand the unconscious mind. – I think Freud would love to be around for that! – If you guys are interested and want to know more about this device, here’s the link for a video which explains how it was discovered and further details about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV-Q51P-WZw. And that’s it for now.
