The future is here now: NeuroSky is reading your thoughts. The California-based company invented the MindSet. It might just change your grumpy mindset the next time you're trying to remember which login password is for what.
Passwords will become "pass thoughts" in the next two to three years, say Cal-Berkeley researchers working with NeuroSky.
The brain has a unique signature, just like your fingerprints. Soon you'll be able to just think your way on to your computer.
Passwords will be more like a thing of the past.
The headset contraption works off of brainwaves, just like what doctors use when they do those EEG exams. But instead of examining those waves the MindSet reads them.
But just like when cell phones first came out, you might be wondering how safe it is to have something read your brain?
NeuroSky says don't always believe the sky is falling. They say it's completely safe. The technology is the same that neuroscientists been using for decades -- it's like reading heart rate.
