Control Your Mobile Phone or Tablet Directly from Your Brain

Samsung is introducing a new way of interacting with mobile devices. The world’s largest producer of mobile phones is experimenting with a mind-controlled tablet. Researchers at the Emerging Technology Lab are working with academics at the University of Texas in Dallas to develop the brain-control interface.

The system uses an EEG-cap, which captures brain waves and translates them into different actions. The user is able to launch an app, select and pause a song, and call contacts. This hands-free form of interaction presents great opportunities for people with mobility impairments.

Brain interfaces may be a more intuitive way of using electronic devices. Can you imagine calling a friend or checking your email without even touching your phone? This emerging technology is bringing the world of telepathy and telekinesis closer to reality.

You save the QR-Code on your hard drive. Have business cards ptirned with the QR-Code on it. The person you give your business card to can scan your business card with his mobile phone.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
