Facebook's Mind Reading Device Allegedly To Be Revealed Next Month
The social network launched a futuristic hardware division called Building 8 last year, which is supposedly similar to Google X, also the experimental lab behind the search company's self-driving cars.
However, what is interesting to note here is that one of the prototypes created by Building 8 is a "brain computer interface" that sounds similar to a platform once mentioned by Mark Zuckerberg, which would allow users to share information telepathically.
In a session last year, Mark Zuckerberg explained that people would be able to “capture a thought, what you’re thinking or feeling in kind of its ideal and perfect form in your head, and be able to share that with the world”.
The latest report in Business Insider suggests at the Facebook developer conference next month, alongside a drone, an augmented reality device and a medical project being led by “an interventional cardiologist from Stanford with expertise in early-stage medical device development”.
How exciting is this news?
