Simply put, Facebook wants to read your mind and actually has admitted to it as well. According to a new announcement, Facebook wants to build a wristband that "captures your intention".
Firstly, "capturing your intention" means that the wristband will have the technological power to be able to read your electrical signals sent to your brain, and determine your intention before you even carry out the action. Meaning Facebook would essentially know what you are about to do before you even do it. Scary? Yes.
According to Andrew Bosworth, Facebook's Vice President of VR and AR, announced on Monday the acquisition of "neural interface platform" CTRL-labs. The way that Facebook is marketing this wristband is "empowering you with control over your digital life", which seems quite the farce considering how much Facebook has been put under the coals for privacy violations.
Andrew Bosworth said "You have neurons in your spinal cord that send electrical signals to your hand muscles telling them to move in specific ways such as to click a mouse or press a button. The wristband will decode those signals and translate them into a digital signal your device can understand, empowering you with control over your digital life."
