Facebook Says We Will Just Think To Type

Facebook researchers are exploring ways to type with your brain and hear through your skin.

Regina Dugan, VP of Engineering and head of Facebook’s Building 8 R&D team, outlined those projects in a recent keynote.

First, she raised the possibility: What if it were possible to type with your brain?  This capability would have obvious benefits for paralyzed and non-vocal individuals, but Dugan pointed out that it would have enormous ramifications for the rest of the population as well. Essentially, this capability could function as a “brain mouse for AR” (augmented reality) and allow us to send messages without even having to take out a phone.

Mark Zuckerberg reiterated more of her analogies in a Facebook post: “Our brains produce enough data to stream 4 HD movies every second. The problem that the best way we have to get information out into the world – speech – can only transmit about the same amount of data as a 1980s modem. We’re working on a system that will let you type straight from your brain about 5x faster than you can type on your phone today.”
