Samsung's Mind-Blowing New Technology Just Made Your New Thing Seem Totally Obsolete

Wednesday, November 14, 2018

It was only just recently that Netflix revealed some truly fascinating new technology to let Netflix users control the Netflix iPhone app with just their eyes.

But now there's news about another new technology that could make "eye-controlled" apps quickly seem like something from the days of dial-up Internet. Because it turns out Samsung is working on something truly mind-blowing: eye-controlled television that leads ultimately to mind-controlled technology.
Much like what Netflix said about its new EyeNav functionality, which lets people control the Netflix app simply by staring at it on an iPhone or making other facial expressions, Samsung says its new technology, called Project Pontis, is aimed at making its products more accessible for people with disabilities.

But let's be honest: Nobody would imagine this would stop there. Mind-controlled electronics would usher in a completely new era of technology, something straight out of the most advanced science fiction.
The giant electronics manufacturer says it's teamed up on this project with the Center of Neuroprosthetics of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland.
"How can we provide accessibility to people who cannot move or who have extreme limitations on their movements?" Ricardo Chavarriaga, a senior scientist at EPFL who works on the project, asked rhetorically at the Samsung Developer Conference last week.

To be sure, this isn't exactly "coming to a television near you," anytime soon. Much as with the Netflix technology is also in early stages. But as a view of how we could interact with technology within a few years, it's fascinating.
