Facebook Now Wants to Connect To Your Brain

In case this sounds like a familiar concept, it’s because Stanford University has already created a similar technology that has been shown to enable people with paralysis to communicate without use of their hands. But that technology requires users to have an implant in their brain, which Dugan said in the announcement would not be the case with their technology. “We think optical imaging is the best place to start.”

This could translate to some sort of hat-like or goggle device, so rest easy, no implanted chips necessary. However, this will take years to develop. For the time being ,they are working on an implant-style prototype to put to test in medical settings, with the ultimate goal of creating a non-invasive way to implement the technology.
