Scientists at the University of California have made a mind-reading machine, which is believed to translate thoughts and display them in the form of texts.

According to Daily Mail, the device is fully developed and claimed to have 90% accuracy rate. It works by interpreting vowels and consonants used to construct a sentence. These sentences, which are based on neural signals can be simultaneously transformed into texts.

In the future, scientists believe that an easily-operated version of this creation could become a part of smartphones. Study leader David Moses told The Sun that this machine would be the first one of its kind, “No published work has demonstrated real-time classification of sentences from neural signals.”

Neurologists create music through thoughts

Moreover, scientists suggest that such advancement in technology could be helpful to people who struggle with speech or are unable to speak or move. In fact, it is thought that the machine can use words that it has never heard before.

However, critics propose that problems can be caused by the machine if secret thoughts are exposed by chance. “I can imagine circumstances where it may reveal some hugely embarrassing thoughts,” The Sun quotes celebrity mind reader Uri Geller.
