TEC NEWS Emails sent by thought
The future has arrived! Wristbands that enable wearers to write and send emails just by thinking about what they want to say could be on the market within three years. A team in New York is working on an electromyography armband that intercepts signals travelling from the brain to the muscles in the hand – including those instructing the fingers to type.
The idea is that people just have to tap their fingers on any surface – or simply think about the action – and the device will pick up and interpret the signals, and produce the text.
