With the development of the system, no keyboards, touch screens or hand gestures would be required for interaction with AR environment
Have you ever thought that any device or technology would be able to read your mind or brain? If you thought so, then it will soon become a reality. Social media giant Facebook is developing a system that could read your mind. The giant’s CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed this information in an interview with Harvard Law School professor Jonathan Zittrain. American monthly magazine Wired recently published this information in a report.
Harvard educated Zuckerberg at a conference in 2017 first leaked out that his company Facebook was doing a research work on such a technology. Now in the interview with the professor, he spoke in details about it.
According to the report, Facebook is doing a research on building a ‘Brain-Computer Interface’. This technology would allow users to interact with Augmented Reality (AR) environment with just their brains. No keyboards, touch screens or hand movements would not require for that.
Users just need to wear a device on their heads which, according to Zuckerberg, can catch blood flows, brain activity and thoughts. As per the report, this device looks like a shower cap.
Scientists can now detect what a user is thinking about at a given time by looking at their neural activity. This scientific breakthrough is helping Facebook develop the technology. Source : Mail Online
