Samsung Patents Brain Implant that Interfaces With External Devices
Samsung envisions much more than just a pacemaker you connect to. The application includes a number of possible scenarios with sci-fi implications such as a brain implant to keep track of brainwaves… and fingertip implants for motion detection.
There’s even mention of using the brain implant to directly control the system. Cutting through the patent-speak, Samsung is talking about an implant system capable of being controlled through thought.
Also fascinating is the… inclusion of a security engine in the device that could send alerts to the user whenever someone else is attempting to access the system. So that scary pre-singularity moment could appear sooner than we thought: the day we have to decide if a chip in the head that could tell us about the stroke we’re about to have is worth the risk of a becoming the target of a brain hack.
