I’ve only just started talking to my phone!
Yup, and if that wasn’t weird enough, now you’ll have to get used to thinking commands at your mobile. Project Black Mirror is the very exciting startup that’s already using mind-control to communicate with Siri, the iPhone 4S's virtual assistant. You can see it in action in the video below.
So no more embarrassing handset chat on the train?
Yup, people will no longer scowl at you on the train as you shout, "phone mum" into your mobile. Instead they may recoil in horror as your straying mind accidentally opens unsavoury websites on your mobile for all to see.
Wow, will it be out soon?
Not likely. Once Apple has sued the pants off these lads for hacking Siri it’ll no doubt steal the tech for itself and after much work come out with a beta in several years's time. The only problem we can’t get around is wearing the ECG headgear in public… perhaps Apple-branded hats will be the fashion of the future.
