This headset can recognize thoughts by training itself to brainwave patterns. It easily detects things like facial expression, general emotions, overall mental state, etc. But what makes it really cool is that it can recognize specific cognitive thoughts: thinking "pull" makes an object pull toward you on the computer screen, etc. All for under $300
So..... What do you think this kind of thing means for our future?
Will we become more aware of ourselves and finally build a decent global system, will we become victims to things remeniscent to Orwell's "thought police," or will it be something else entirely?
So far I'm just excited about making music with it. It's in the mail
