My brain just exploded

That’s what Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Netscape, says about this new technology.

From the YouTube description. it’s “a neckband that intercepts nerve signals allows you to talk on the phone without emitting a sound.” Yes, you read that right.

People with ALS can now communicate using it. So far it has a small vocabulary, but will be expanding soon. Hey, now you can talk on your cell phone in public without speaking.

Andreessen adds, “I have a feeling that someday, this may be up there with ‘Come here, Watson, I need you.'”

More from New Scientist. It’s developed by The Audeo.
