Submission + - Intel Shows Off Mind-Reading Software (

upto0013 writes: Intel is showing off new software that can read minds. Designers say that the software could help disabled people speak, in a way.

"The software analyzes functional MRI scans to determine what parts of a person's brain is being activated as he or she thinks. In tests, it guessed with 90 percent accuracy which of two words a person was thinking about, said Intel Labs researcher Dean Pomerleau."

It's currently only working along side the MRI scanners, and has yet to analyze abstract thoughts, but it signals a step leap in controlling technology with our mind.

The unveiling also comes along side a bunch of other interesting Intel secret projects.
