'Facebook is developing technology that could soon make it possible to read your mind.
CEO Mark Zuckerberg detailed how the Silicon Valley giant is researching a 'brain-computer interface' in an interview with Harvard law school professor Jonathan Zittrain, according to Wired.
In the near future, this system would allow users to interact with augmented reality environments using just their brain - no keyboards, touchscreens or hand gestures required.
The concept that Zuckerberg envisions would allow users to navigate menus, move objects in an AR room or even type words with their brain.
Users would wear a device akin to a shower cap on their head that's capable of picking up blood flows, brain activity and thoughts, Wired explained.
This technology is helped by the fact that researchers can already detect when a user is thinking about something in particular by looking at their neural activity.
A mind-reading device will make it that much easier for humans to interact with technology, Zuckerberg claims.
'The way that our phones work today, and all computing systems, organized around apps and tasks is fundamentally not how our brains work and how we approach the world,' Zuckerberg told Zittrain, according to Wired.
'That's one of the reasons why I'm just very excited longer term about especially things like augmented reality, because It'll give us a platform that I think actually is how we think about stuff.''
