Mind Control Conspiracies
MIT has created a special headset that allows you to communicate with a computer system by simply thinking what you want to say to it, kind
of like being able to issue a command to Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri telepathically.
It's called AlterEgo and it's a wearable device that attaches to your jaw and face (don't worry, it's totally non-invasive and doesn't break the
skin, although the prototype looks a little goofy) where electrodes pick up neuromuscular signals triggered when you say words in your head.
These signals aren't detectable when you look at someone who is verbalizing internally.
The researchers tested the prototype device in a study involving 10 participants and found that it transcribed internal vocalizations with 92
percent accuracy on average.
