The future is here! We no longer have to worry about being smart or having to study because soon we can wear a headband that will increase your brain smarts by 40 percent! Holy smokes! Can I order this like NOW!

The device is ‘non-invasive transcranial direct current stimulation’ (tDCS) was designed by researchers from HRL Laboratories and McGill University in Montreal, with funding from the Defense Advance Research Project Agency (DARPA), translation: its for the military! But apparently soon available for all the rest of us!

The researchers tested the device on macaque monkeys. Study found that without the tDCS treatment, it took the macaques an average of 22 trials to learn to find the rewards but with the treatment, it took them an average of 12 trials, suggesting an increase in learning of 40 per cent.

Experts hope the headband device will be approved by the FDA, and researchers suggests that the technology could be widespread in just five to ten years. Marking my calendar and reminder now on my phone for 2022! So ready for real smarts!  ~grace
