It’s hard to imagine technology being integrated into our lives more than it already is, but inevitably it will be. One futuristic piece of tech was featured on last night’s 60 Minutes, which traveled to MIT and saw the latest projects from its media lab that invented the original touchscreen.
The most impressive – or disturbing – device featured was easily the headset created by Arnav Kapur that allows him to search the internet using only his mind. Kapur silently Googled questions asked by Scott Simon and received the answers through vibrations transmitted through his skull and into his inner ear.
Not only does he get every answer right without ever actually asking the questions, he also ordered some food for the production staff. Maybe this could be useful after all.
