Voiceless Phone call uses Nerve signals to Mimic Telepathy

Ambient TechnologyThis is so cool, it’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 you’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, doesn’t actually read you mind, however.
