Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology developed a device capable of " hearing " and   perceive a person's thoughts. It is called AlterEgo and   at   Unlike   other neuroscholes, it's not   you need to connect directly to   the brain.

How it works

AlterEgo catches the impulses that brain neurons transmit to the facial muscles, tongue and   larynx, which are responsible for   speech. Roughly speaking, if the word forms in   form of thought, then   AlterEgo intercepts it   before   how the word will fly out of the sparrow. Therefore, the gadget itself is more like   on   helmet, and   not   jaw retainer   - it is in   This area contains 7 electrodes that read the signals of the facial muscles. also in   kit has headphones for feedback from   gadget.

Why it's interesting

Because it's not   quite ordinary " neuroshelm " , which was shown in   news, not   invented how to use it and   a year later they forgot. By   he is   integrates the " mind reader " with   voice assistant, allowing you to communicate with   gadgets not   uttering words aloud. For example, now he   can control the set-top box, plyusovat prices in   supermarket or memorize the steps in   chess.

AT   perspective it   will work with   voice assistants from   Amazon and   Google, and   the design itself will be reduced to   the size of portable headphones. But only if the market is interested in this thing. Previous "mind readers " did not fire, because they demanded access to the contents of the cranium, which is not very convenient.
