Mark Zuckerberg has plans to make Facebook bigger and bigger. Not only is the company using facial recognition when you tag someone in a pic, but now it is trying to control everything you see, with virtual reality. Now virtual reality then augmented reality and with future concepts of technology- enabled telepathy. Companies are already in the process to augment intelligence. Brain to text technology is way on its way.

I waited, but apparently no one sees the humor in this that I do.

"Facebook has a plan to let you type with your brain"

Like most of social media, first, you need a ...

This is a bit of a long shot project. It's been done before but it's really, really hard to make sense of the signals even if you have the luxury of being able to do invasive procedures.

Probably the only thing that would translate into a post on Facebook from my brain would be a middle finger sign.

As great as an idea like this sounds technologically, I really don't like it. I am reminded of those sci-fi thrillers about machines that take over the world. To take that a step beyond I would say that it would be even worse in the hands of globalist monopolizers who would definitely turn people into obedient machines. What matters though is which side of the coin you're on. If you aren't wealthy and powerful this could mean you might be turned into a machine and who knows what else could become of this technology.
