Machines That Read Your Mind: The New Focus on Neurotech

Innovators in the neurotech industry will soon be able to use technology to read your mind: the proof is in the patents.  Indeed, patents in neurotechnology have skyrocketed from 300 a year in the 2000s to over 1,600 last year.  The most fascinating of those patents describe technologies that detect your emotional state and play appropriate music (e.g. Mozart when you are concentrating on something), read your brainwaves to determine what you truly think about a product and even change your brain activities to enhance your vision.  Check out Reuters’ article for more information, and if you’re really curious, use Google Patent to locate the specifications actually filed by the inventors with the United States Patent and Trademark Office!
