With the fast growth of modern technology, we have seen the invention of different things that might have seem impossible to create. Presently, there is an amazing new invention that is designed to help people type on their computers by just reading their thoughts and it is quite accurate!
This new headset can listen to the user’s internal vocal instructions and speak to the user while it appears silent to others as the user is wearing it.
The long Work Process
MIT Media Lab researchers in their extensive research realized that when a person thinks about saying something, clear signals are sent by the human brain to the facial muscles. The lab researchers using the assistance of different groups of volunteers then found the part of the face that had the most dependable signals.
By using the knowledge of the connection between the brain and the facial muscles, the researchers after working for several hours created the “Alter Ego”, a headset which can easily be worn by users to pick up words as they think of them!
In an interview, Arnav Kapur a graduate student who is the creator of this device said that the new invention Is like a device that gives you superpowers. The device was created with Pattie Maes, a fellow student.
We hope to get more amazing inventions from this research team.
A System for Innovations and New Developments
This easily wearable headset makes use of electrodes that is present along the cheek, the jaw and the chin so as to pick up neuromuscular signals in the face and jaw. The device with this technology, can easily recognize words and numbers and then the information imported into the computer that is in use to know what the user is trying to do or say. The device can be used to control other devices, type words and also communicate with other users.
The headset was tested in different ways by the researchers, using it to control Roku players, answer math equations and in determining the thoughts of users, the headset was seen to be 92 percent accurate. This new one of a kind headset is just one of the several new inventions made by researchers which will continue to change what we know life as.
A New Wave for the Future
Most researchers and scientists believe in future, this sort of mind uploading device could become the norm and this will absolutely be no surprise in a world where clones and robots are being developed.
Though some others are cynical about this futuristic idea, the world possibly will be using devices like this new advanced headset to send thoughts to our phones and computers and even other people.
Since the mind can think then there is a high possibility that anything can be achieved. In many years to come, no one knows what the world will be like, what we all will be doing and where we will be.
