This is so cool, itâ€™s almost scary. Ambient Corp. has developed and recently unveiled a neckband which translates thoughts about speech into computer-generated speech itself. It was demonstrated at a recent conference hosted by Texas Instruments, a manufacturer of microchips and the optical semiconductors used in DLP technology.
The neckband detects nerve signals that indicate what youâ€™re thinking about saying. These signals are relayed wirelessly to a computer that recognizes and translates them into words or phrases. The neckband, called the Audeo, doesnâ€™t actually read you mind, however.
