Samsung working on brain control of your phone or tablet
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. The researchers discovered that by monitoring well-known brain activity patterns while showing visual patterns repetitively, people could open an app and make selections from a menu by concentrating on an icon blinking at a certain frequency.
The research is far from completed. Right now, it takes 45 minutes to set up the cap, and the electrodes still requires a sticky gel to apply. The current success rate is between 80% and 95% with a selection made every 5 seconds. The exciting thing is that the technology does work and is being refined. Eventually, those who otherwise could not use a touchscreen device will be able to still own and seamlessly use a smartphone or tablet.
Thanks Anonymous Tipster!

Apple already use this technology, but instead of controlling phones and tablets, Apple controls gullible and naive customers brains.

Actually this technology is now working...look at you, you've been controlled by Samsung.lol

LOL! I don't use Samsung products.

Why on earth would someone red-arrow amats69 I have no idea. It seems some people can't get over it when their non-favourite company is innovating or doing special.

This is fanboyism on another level - what is wrong with PapaSmurf's statement? Samsung are innovating, these dislikers should get over it!

2 words; butthurt haters..
But you know what they say; baseless hatred is all about jealousy, which is just confused admiration. =]
43. Wiki_jaan (Posts: 701; Member since: 24 Jun 2012)

6. tedkord (Posts: 4249; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
Take notes? Right now they're preparing a patent application.
7. osmaankhaan (unregistered)

18. tedkord (Posts: 4249; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
I wonder which poster here signed himself up for 10 or so accounts.
10. nerdylish (Posts: 51; Member since: 13 Apr 2013)
Why do you guys involve Apple in every damn article?
11. amats69 (Posts: 956; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
because they like apple...............secretly.....LOL
21. joey_sfb (Posts: 2487; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
Apple really has no class and their users are mostly gullible consumer that has no idea what and where technology has advanced.
I bored with Apple iOS launcher since 2009.
32. amats69 (Posts: 956; Member since: 12 Nov 2012)
so you mean you are a gullible consumer last 2009 downwards?

This technology would not work on an appfail novelty. You need brainpower to make it work, so....

Samsung should first try to perfect the eye tracking future before moving on to this brain,eye tracking is not working as we initially thought
9. osmaankhaan (unregistered)
do u own a s4 or just throwing the ball randomly hoping 4 a basket.
20. tedkord (Posts: 4249; Member since: 17 Jun 2009)
What's a good point? The fact that the poster has absolutely no idea how well the eye tracking of the S4 works?
28. Abbath (Posts: 99; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
Samsung will continue to work on perfecting it whilst forward thinking about other innovations. They dont need their entire R and D staff to perfect eye tracking c'mon

This is very interesting use your mind too control your tablet. They better patent this one before some other company does it
17. Neurone (Posts: 54; Member since: 05 Mar 2013)
Its Really a good blend of tech and medicine.Thanks to U.O.Texus and Sammy....keep it up!
19. cR203 (Posts: 183; Member since: 27 Jan 2013)
This is truly innovation I hope Samsung can perfect this further and go mainstream with it.
22. AeroPrime (Posts: 145; Member since: 21 Feb 2011)
Good for me. I always do things with my mind. it only need to be wired.

"Samsung has partnered with Skynet Industries to create a technology that becomes self aware and will predict how to handle the human problem... Um, I mean consumer and their needs."

That's right Samsung! That's right! This is INNOVATION!
Now we need protection from plants, cuz zombies will eat our brains! Nope, just kidding!
By the way, great job Samsung! :D
30. DutaAV (Posts: 1; Member since: 22 Mar 2013)
then your phone and tablet will control your brain... wkwkwkw....
31. rgxVOiD (Posts: 432; Member since: 30 Aug 2012)
How is this innovation? the CIA had brain control for ages, maybe even the Germans has it since WW2. It doesn't work 100% but it still works
35. Antonyjoseph (Posts: 213; Member since: 06 Apr 2013)
I hope Samsung has patented this already, otherwise it will become an apple 'innovation'.
48. therealestmc (Posts: 129; Member since: 23 Jul 2012)
This is not Samsung idea. Many companies and universities have been working n this tech for a while. Anyways, Samsung is probably just providing the funds for th research.
40. pkiran1996 (Posts: 160; Member since: 22 Oct 2011)
And here come the Sony and HTC fanboys to thumb down every single positive comment and spoil the fun.
44. yudi.nemesis (Posts: 1127; Member since: 14 Mar 2013)

49. Rehankhan (Posts: 323; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
