You Can Just Keep Mine, Mr. Nazi.

Thank you anyway.

While Apple focuses on speech technology with Siri, IBM believes the next revolution will involve our brains. To tackle and make mind control a reality, we’d all need to wear something like Emotiv’s EPOC neuroheadset that’s equipped with sensors that read electrical brain signals.

According to IBM Research News “the idea is to use these electrical synapses to also do everyday activities such as placing a phone call, turning on the lights or even in the healthcare space for rehabilitation.”

That’s great news, but we’re not quite ready for mind reading yet. Devices like the EPOC are still kind of bulky and make you look like a dorky cyborg.

The magic will happen when the sensors get miniaturized.
