Is there a reason why this can't work?

It's a patent for inducing physiological states in the nervous system through weak electromagnetic fields via a computer screen.

Here's the patent

well for one, no one uses CRTs anymore. Second at those distances the magnetic field would be really fucking weak and liable to being drown out by other environmental magnetic fields.

That's not to say you can't mess with the brain using magnetic fields though. But current transcranial magnetic stimulation setups need precise positioning and relatively high magnetic fields to have any effect.

The magnetic field would probably need to be so powerful your electricity bill would be 2k a month and it'd probably just give you a headache or make you nauseated like most other kinds of brainwave-matching EM waves.

Might work, but not really workable if the idea is to brain-wash people into buying a new brainwashing television set every 3 months.

Take a look at the patent, it claims to be able to induce specific physiological states by creating electromagnetic fields with certain frequencies around 1/2 Hz and 2.4Hz. It even claims that it can inadvertently affect people in the background behind the screen.

So you're saying it can't work on an lcd monitor, and the concept itself is bullshit?

I'm asking for a refutation of the patent anon.

>>7814718
patents can claim whatever the hell they want, they are not peer reviewed.

If the guy who examined it didn't know too much about the subject he might have let it pass without checking if it actually worked (a lot of patented inventions don't work, btw).
