This Strange Headset Lets You Interact with Digital Devices Simply By Reading Your Mind

April 6, 2018View for printing

Researchers at MIT have developed a headset that can read the words you're picturing in your mind so that you can interact with digital devices, virtual assistants--like Siri and Alexa--and other people, without actually speaking.

When you think about saying a word, your brain sends signals to your face muscles to prepare them for the upcoming vocalization. The device works by reading these so-called sub-vocalizations, otherwise known as "silent speech."
