MIT has developed a headset called AlterEgo.
It can read your thoughts or more specifically, your intent to speak using an apparatus that connects to ear and chin.
The device reads the signals in your brain that are sent to your mouth and jaw without the need for you to actually vocalize anything out loud.
When you think about words or sentence in your head, AlterEgo picks them up.
It can interpret what you're thinking.
It also can communicate with its user through phone conduction headphones.
In a demo video made by MIT, the device is shown totaling the cost of grocery items.
Even allowing its user to control a menu on its Screen.
So think the alter ago sounds like science fiction?
Well, it had a 92% success rate when it comes to accurately transcribing thought while being tested in trials with 15 people.
The main idea behind the headset is to create a way for people to interact with their smart devices without actually having to pull them out.
Sure, alter ego looks goofy in it's prototype stages, but it certainly presents an impressive potential in a seemingly endless amount of applications.
