A mind-reading chip that let you control a computer by just thinking has been unveiled at a conference in China.

Dubbed Brain Talker, works by picking out small electrical pulses in the brain and quickly decoding them into signals that a computer can interpret.

The chip could be used to control computers, smartphones and other devices, its creators say.

It also has potential medical, education, security and entertainment applications, they add.

Information - Chip

However, the information released so far on the chip and exactly how it operates is limited.

The Brain Talker chip has been jointly developed by Tianjin University and the China Electronics Corporation.

These kinds of brain–computer interfaces are design to let a person control a computer, smartphone or other electronic device using their brainwaves alone — without needing any form of verbal instruction, movement, or button pressing.

Brain interfaces would not only allow for the faster operation of various technologies, but also be used to assist people with disabilities, for example by letting an individual drive an electric wheelchair just by thinking.

Interfaces - Future - Dong - Ming - Dean

'Brain-computer Interfaces hold a promising future,' said Dong Ming, dean of Tianjin University's Academy of Medical Engineering and Translational Medicine.

'The Brain Talker chip advances brain-computer interface technology, allowing it to become more portable, wearable and accessible to the general public,' he added.
