Brain can ‘read your mind’: enlists Stephen Hawking
A team of California scientists have developed the world’s first portable brain scanner, and it may soon be able to “read a person’s mind,” playing a major role in facilitating medical breakthroughs.
“This is very exciting for us because it allows us to have a window into the
brain. We’re building technology that will allow humanity to have access
to the human brain for the first time,” said the project’s leader, Phillip Low.
KGTV reports that the device, created by San Diego-based NeuroVigil, and dubbed the iBrain, fits over a person’s head and measures unique neurological patterns connected to specific thought processes.
Low says the goal is to eventually have a large enough database of these
brainwaves that a computer could essentially read a person’s thoughts
out loud. One person who has already tried out the iBrain is famed
physicist Dr. Stephen Hawking.
“We’d like to find a way to bypass his body, pretty much hack his brain,”
said Low. This past summer, Low traveled to Cambridge, England, where he
met with Hawking, who was asked to think “very hard” about completing
various tasks while wearing the device….
