Mark Zuckerberg wants you to be able to type 100 words per minute by wearing a brain-reading speech decoder first announced by the company in 2017.

(INTELLIHUB) — Facebook announced two years ago that the company would be working on designing a futuristic headband that can read your thoughts and integrate them with computers allowing the user to type some 100 words per minute.

Now in 2019, the technology is becoming more of a reality and is currently being tested vigorously on human test subjects who have volunteered to be guinea pigs.

According to MIT Technology Review: “… some of that research was described in a scientific paper from the University of California, San Francisco, where researchers have been developing “speech decoders” able to determine what people are trying to say by analyzing their brain signals.”

Although the technology sounds enticing it can also be dangerous.

Keep in mind once the product is developed the tech giant will be just one step closer to actually reading your mind while you are online.
