Now You See What: This MIT Student Developed A Gadget That Allows Him To Search Through The Whole Internet By Just Using His Mind.

It’s amazing what a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) student has created: a device that lets us talk to machines with our minds.

The AlterEgo wearable headset, invented by Arnav Kapur, enables people to interact with technology verbally or nonverbally.

How then does it operate?

As soon as the user hears or thinks of a specific word, the device records signals. After that, machines are programmed to use the internet to find the solution using this information.

It Is almost like having Google in your brain, which is amazing.

The device can find the right response online without the user having to talk, type, or do anything at all. It then sends the information back to the inner ear via vibrations in the skull.

It can perform Information searches, work out mathematical calculations, and respond to a wide range of queries.

This makes it possible for a human-computer contact to occur that the user perceives as entirely internal to themselves—akin to conversing with themselves.

With no visible action, at will, without disconnecting from her surroundings, and without violating her privacy, this allows a user to send and receive streams of information to and from a computer device or any other individual.”

In a video showing the device in operation, Kapur is asked to solve an absurdly challenging math problem, which he achieves with Ease.

He is then asked to list the biggest city in Bulgaria and the population of the surrounding area, both of which he naturally provides. The goal, according to Kapur, is to essentially have the entire internet within his skull.

However, providing assistance to people with speech impairments, including those with neurological illnesses, is another area of focus.

“This project’s main goal is to support communication for individuals with speech disorders, such as those caused by multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).”

“Beyond that, the system has the potential to seamlessly integrate humans and computers, such that computing, the Internet, and AI would weave into our daily lives as a’second self’ and augment our cognition and abilities.”
