Next time if you make a call to a wrong number by mistake, blame your brain! Enter the future, researchers from Swartz Centre for Computational Neuroscience at the University of California, San Diego has testing a technology which will allow human brain to dial the numbers from Mobile Phones, as reported by DailyMail.
With this technology, you never have to move your fingers a bit, it truly breaks the barrier and take the hands-free in a new level.
The breakthrough is likely to create safer hands-free mobile phones, mostly for drivers, disabled or elderly persons or professionals on huge work load environments. Thought controlled computers have been around for a while, but this is the first time it is adapted for mobile phones.
Developer Tzyy-Ping Jung told users have to wear a head band which includes electroencephalogram (EEG) electrodes on the scalp to work out what the brain is trying to say. There are algorithms to process the brain signals and a Bluetooth gadget sends instructions to the phone. Developers tried with Nokia N73 phone.
He also said “From our experience, anyone can do it.’ During trials, users were shown digits from zero to nine flashing at different speeds on a screen and this was detected by the electrodes.” Initial experiments were accurate of 70 – 85% when trying to dial a 10 digit phone number. He believes it could be 100 per cent accurate with just a bit of training.
