Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg wants to build a brain-computer interface that can read your mind, according to Wired.

Zuckerberg told a Harvard audience last month that the idea is the allow people to use their thoughts to navigate through augmented reality.

Wired noted there would be no typing and no speaking. And Zuckerberg says the brain-computer interface does not breach and person’s integrity.

“The way that our phones work today, and all computing systems, organized around apps and tasks is fundamentally not how our brains work and how we approach the world,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons why I’m just very excited longer term about especially things like augmented reality, because it’ll give us a platform that I think actually is how we think about stuff.”

“Presumably, this would be something that someone would choose to use as a product.”

According to Wired, the technology would be included in a shower-cap-looking device. It would surround the brain and discover connections between particular thoughts and particular brain activities. Wired noted it would presumably assistant devices manufactured by Oculus VR, which is owned by Facebook.
