Specialists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology presented a prototype device AlterEgo, who can read minds, reports CNet. The principle of the device is based on the bone conduction of brain signals. To use AlterEgo, you need to put the device on your head, fixing it behind your ear and on your chin. Sensors will collect information coming from the brain, process and execute commands.
For example, if you think "What time is it?", The device will tell you the exact time. AlterEgo can also perform other basic commands - understand thoughts, convert to a query and respond. According to engineers, the accuracy of transcription of thoughts is about 92%. MIT graduate student Arnav Kapur, who heads the development of the device, called it a device that "expands the human intellect" and a future alternative to smartphones and other smart gadgets.
