Samsung has revealed the tablet reading thoughts

brain control device

One day the day will come when we will be able to check e-mail and call on a cell phone without touching the screen, and without recourse to the voice assistant. The South Korean company Samsung is exploring possibilities of mobile device management power of thought. New technology to help people with disabilities to use modern technological developments. The ultimate goal of the project – expand the way people interact and electronic devices .

Researchers from the Laboratory of emerging technologies with Samsung Ruzbehom Jafari, associate professor of electrical engineering, University of Texas at Dallas are studying people’s ability to launch applications, select recipients from the contacts list, the songs from the playlist, and turn on and off your mobile device with the help of thoughts. Testing was conducted using technology tablet Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Although today the Korean manufacturer is no immediate plans to release a smartphone controlled by thought, preliminary studies indicate that the interface of the “brain-computer” can help the disabled to solve previously unattainable task, the resource Technology Review.

It should be noted that the registration system of weak electric currents generated by the cerebral cortex, are already present on the market. For example, a NeuroSky headset uses EEG to control video games and objects by mental concentration. The company Emotiv Systems, in turn, has released a wireless controller on the head that reads and transfers the user’s facial expressions and emotions on a virtual character, thus improving the game.

In the experiment, researchers from Samsung and the University of Texas at Dallas monitored the brain activity of people who exhibited repetitive visual images. As it turned out, the subjects were able to run the application and make a choice, focusing on the icon flashing at a certain frequency.

According to the scientist Robert Jacob from Tufts University, working on the study of human-computer interaction, this project is part of a larger work on finding new ways to communicate with mobile devices by type smartphones:

The technology allows you to control the phone without taking it out of his pocket.

Lead researcher Samsung Inso Kim sure that the search for new ways to interact with mobile devices helps the project to develop faster.

Until a few years ago, the only input device into a mobile phone was a tiny keyboard. Today, you can communicate with the phone through voice commands, touch, gestures, and eye movements. With new ways to manage mobile devices will become even more convenient – Kim says.

The researcher recognizes that we need a more thorough investigation. Before Neurocomputing interface will be implemented in today’s mobile devices, it will be some time. One of the objectives was to develop a system of treatment of the weak and noisy signals received by an electroencephalogram, for subsequent use in a mobile device.

If classical system for registering and analyzing EEG require applied to the scalp electrodes for electrically conductive gel and configure the device for 45 minutes, then for Samsung EEG system need no gel, and setting takes only 10 seconds. However, using a cap with electrodes and connecting wires to both.

Dry EEG system can not be called new, but the quality of treatment of brain signals is poor. However, researchers continue to work on improving its technology. If the system will be convenient and practical to use, then the target device mobile device management power of thought may seem like a casual hat, which had long been accustomed to, says Jafari.

It is also noted that the speed of the system depends on the particular user. The experiment showed that the average mental command is executed for five seconds with an accuracy of 80 to 95 percent.

We can not predict how this technology will change our world. But given the massive support, the development of human-machine interfaces is inevitable – says scientist Samsung.

According to the forecasts of the American company IBM, control technology smartphones and computers using the power of thought will become mainstream in a few years .
