How the thought reader works

Several scholars from the Catholic University of the Belgian city of Louvain worked for a long time on the practical application of the theory of material thoughts. The result of their work was a unique thought-reading device that would allow people to communicate unable to speak. It is a small device the size of a matchbox, which is fixed in the central part of a special cap resembling a swimming cap. Attached to it are wires connecting the instrument to the computer. This device, which operates on the principle of electroencephalogram, monitors fluctuations in electrical activity of brain neurons, records them and transmits them to the computer via a USB port. There they are decrypted using special software, and on the computer monitor there is a person’s thought expressed in understandable words and sentences. In order to express one’s thoughts, it is only necessary to think about something and draw up a logical sentence in one’s head. The device will then transmit the necessary signals, recognize them and turn them into text and then sound. The instrument is also equipped with functions of independent logical formation of phrases from thoughts and even reproduction of certain intonations. The thought reading device scientists tested on 13 patients who suffered brain haemorrhage. They were all able to successfully express their thoughts at a rate of 10 signs per minute. Belgian scientists hope to improve this technology in the next few ways and to ensure that the speed of repeatable phrases is not inferior to the speed of thought. Also they want to turn it into a market product that would manage to help a lot of people. Thanks to this device, people who cannot speak and move will be able to express their thoughts to others with success.
