Small startup can bypass the mask and Zuckerberg, linking our brain with a computer
Modern technologies such as self-contained electric cars and flying taxi necessarily change the world. But nothing will affect our future as a technology that will connect the human brain to a computer. It is known that on this task beat Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg, but they are still very far from realizing their ideas. But the young startup Nuro could take much less time.
Imagine that all the information can be found on the web, and all of your smartphone or laptop are in your head, and are controlled by the brain. We will stop to forget anything. We will receive information instantly and just as quickly be able to share it. We do not even have to do to write the text or talk.
It is obvious that the one who first implements this technology and give it to the people, will come to the exorbitant rate of development. If all this is implemented in a single country, it would be impossible to catch up. Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg aware of this and are working on a secret project Neuralink and Building 8. The problem is that they are developed based on invasive procedures. In other words, in the future will need surgery on the brain. This makes such a future too far. It will take a lot of time to deploy the technology that people are willing to live in your body through brain surgery. Which can speed up the process? Technology that does not require invasive intervention. This technology is at Nuro. Back in April, the company unveiled its software called Nuos. It was created with the aim to give an opportunity to communicate to people who have suffered spinal cord injuries and other serious illnesses that affected their ability to communicate with the outside world.
The company experienced its instrument of at least one person and showed how a user interacts with the system Nuos using a conventional tablet. On the tablet screen displays icons with expressions like "I need water" or "I'm cold." Focusing on a particular icon, the user can select it. The system monitors the activity of the brain. The Nuro created an interface based on brain waves.
Today Nuro working towards medicine and create a product to help people with disabilities. However, CEO Francois Gand believes that in the future their technology can go beyond health care facilities. With the help of brain waves can manage their smartphone, smart home, and even a car. It is known that the company Nissan already interested in a similar fashion the interaction between the human brain and technologies. Francois Gand sees a variety of ways to use technology Nuro. For example, he imagines a faster keyboard that will work in conjunction with applications, adjusting to their capabilities. Gand is willing to work together with the application developers who want to use technology Nuro.
He wants the same as the mask with Zuckerberg, but is willing to make this more secure manner. By the way, while the founders of Facebook and Tesla will test your design animal technology like Nuro, it will have to tie our brain to a computer. Even if a solution is not the most elegant, it will be a big step toward the future.
