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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
