The founder of Facebook mark Zuckerberg has developed the concept that in the future the users to communicate with each other, as well as surf the net do not need a screen or keyboard, informs Rus.Media.

According to the idea of Zuckerberg, users will wear the device similar to a hat that can read the activity of their brains – in fact, read minds.

The founder of Facebook spoke in detail about the device in an interview with the Professor from the law school of Harvard University Jonathan Strano.

In the near future this system will allow users to interact with virtual reality systems, using only your brain, no keyboards, touch screens or hand gestures is not necessary. Zuckerberg called this concept the “interface brain-computer”, because between two endpoints will not intermediaries.

The concept that involves Zuckerberg will allow users to navigate menus, move objects in the virtual reality system or even type words with thoughts.

“Users will wear the device similar to a shower cap on his head, is able to detect blood flow, brain activity and thoughts,” explained Zuckerberg.

“Also, the device can be used for data transmission – if this is implemented, then the brain can send the data in volume 4 HD movies in 1 second, while at the moment the process of transferring information from the brain is carried out only through language, the data transfer rate which is equal modem the 1980-ies,” – said Zuckerberg.

According to him, a device for mind reading will greatly facilitate the interaction of people with technology.

In the comments note that “Zuckerberg’s enthusiasm about this work ironic, because the company lost a lot of trust among its users after repeated reports of privacy breach”. Millions of Americans left the social network in 2018, so the “future plans of Facebook to create an interface between brain and computer seem strangely detached from the present reality.

Additionally, in the beginning of 2019 reported that the development of this device has confirmed the co-author, Professor of computer science and engineering at the University of California Ricky Mueller.

“The application interface the brain-machine has far-reaching consequences: while some researchers focus on their use to help people with spinal cord injuries or other diseases that affect movement. We want this interaction resembled work with laptops and smartphones, ” said Ricky Mueller.
