Facebook is working on the technology of communication with the help of thoughts, and this is not fake news!
Facebook Communication May Become a Way Different
Have you ever thought: what if you were able to share your thoughts the way you share photos and videos? This is not just a fantasy: Mark Zuckerberg is working on this to be applied to Facebook! This will be possible with the help of a special device for controlling the program with the help of your thoughts. Zuckerberg has even notified about this technology on his personal page, so things are getting serious.
How It Works
Our brain processes enough data to broadcast 4 movies every second. The thing is that speech (either written or oral) slows down this process the way the modem of 1980’s did. Thus, scientists work on the development of the system, which would help to record data from your brain in nearly 5 times faster than you type text on your smartphone.
However, this should be transformed into mobile technology, which can be widely used. Even a simple brain command Yes/No will help to make such things as an augmented reality more natural. Unfortunately, all those who are already excited about the news need to hold on: the technology is only in a project and needs a lot of work and tests to be launched.
Gossips or Reality?
Facebook today works on a lot of curious things. Not long ago, Mark Zuckerberg has confirmed the gossips about the fact that the company is working on the interface of the mind control.
The platform with the support of the augmented reality Camera Effects will be available for the beta-version developments very soon. With the help of it, it will be possible to impose three-dimensional masks on the real faces. This invention would benefit from the algorithms of machine learning and determination of objects.
Are You Ready?
The question is: are people ready for these inventions and changes of their everyday life? The answer is “yes” and “no” at the same time.
Yes, because what we considered crazy a few years ago, does not seem unreal today. It looks like technologies can barely impress us, and we are ready to any innovations that are produced. Manufacturers and developers just need to make it and let us use the products, and an average person will take it almost for granted, not thinking what a progress it is.
No, because our social sphere already suffers from the consequences of technologies’ intervention into the social life. For example, people tend to communicate online more than offline. If this tendency were forced by new inventions, we would hardly see people on the streets communicating in an old good way.
