Mind controlled tablet starts to become a reality

Posted: April 25, 2013

mindcontrolThe futuristic possibilities we thought were only possible in the sci-fi movies are slowly but surely catching up with us. With touch, gesture and even eye control becoming a reality in recent times, Samsung, who created that Galaxy S4 phone which is controlled by eye movements, have proved that by concentrating, you can make selections on a tablet.

Users currently need to wear a cap with EEG-monitoring electrodes but the inventors are looking to create a dryer version soon. Many companies, including IBM have shown serious interest in this technology particularly for gauging moods. Although it may be a slower transaction from thought to display and far from general public use, this technology will be invaluable to those with mobility disabilities. Seeing as a lot of systems are now controlled by tablets, this technology could prove to be life changing for those needing AV equipment.
