Intel Wants Brain Implants in Its Customersí Heads by 2020
thus creating the inevitable Z-day apocalypse when the 'eat human flesh trojan of 2045' overtakes the system
If the idea of turning consumers into true cyborgs sounds creepy, donít tell Intel researchers. Intelís Pittsburgh lab aims to develop brain implants that can control all sorts of gadgets directly via brain waves by 2020.
The scientists anticipate that consumers will adapt quickly to the idea, and indeed crave the freedom of not requiring a keyboard, mouse, or remote control for surfing the Web or changing channels. They also predict that people will tire of multi-touch devices such as our precious iPhones, Android smart phones and even Microsoftís wacky Surface Table.
Turning brain waves into real-world tech action still requires some heavy decoding of brain activity. The Intel team has already made use of fMRI brain scans to match brain patterns with similar thoughts across many test subjects.
