Implant Encodes Experiences Directly into Brain

They've got bionic eyes, they've got bionic ears, now here's the world's first brain prothesis.
They've developed an artificial hippocampus that's ready to undergo testing. The hippocampus is the part of the brain responsible for storing experiences in your memory bank. So what you have here is a cybernetic implant that is directly inputing experiences into your brain. Wow.

This opens up all sorts of possibilities. For example, if two people had the implant, you could record the experience processed by one person's implant and replay it on the second person's, encoding the same experience. in their brain. Digital knowledge transferrance. Download the experience of having studied all your textbooks cover-to-cover, or going through covert ops training, or outdoor survival training...
