Facebook technology will let people type with brain directly

Social networking company Facebook is currently working on a technology that will make keyboards useless. The company is creating a brain-computer-interface technology that will allow users to type with their thoughts.

The mind will be used for direct communication through the interface. This was revealed by Facebook on Wednesday.

The optical imaging system will scan users' brains hundred times per second to detect them speaking silently in their head and translate it into text.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said that the technology will be 5 times faster than typing on phones.
