New Mind Reading Tech straight out of Black Mirror

MIT has unveiled a special headset that can read your thoughts. 

"MIT has created a special headset that allows you to communicate with a computer system by simply thinking what you want to say to it, kind of like being able to issue a command to Amazon's Alexa or Apple's Siri telepathically.

It's called AlterEgo and it's a wearable device that attaches to your jaw and face (don't worry, it's totally non-invasive and doesn't break the skin, although the prototype looks a little goofy) where electrodes pick up neuromuscular signals triggered when you say words in your head. These signals aren't detectable when you look at someone who is verbalizing internally."

This is just like the episode in Black Mirror, and we all know how that turned out. What do you think?
