The Sub-Vocalizing Phone

Straight out of sci-fi (get used to hearing that over the next decade), comes the phone that you use without speaking. According to New Scientist:

‘A neckband that translates thought into speech by picking up nerve signals has been used to demonstrate a “voiceless” phone call for the first time.

With careful training a person can send nerve signals to their vocal cords without making a sound. These signals are picked up by the neckband and relayed wirelessly to a computer that converts them into words spoken by a computerised voice.’

  1. Cam – I swear that I did not know you had posted about this! But the big question is – was I before you or were you before me? LOL funny though. Seriously had no idea you had anything on your blog about it.

  2. LOL, looks like you beat me by about 11 hours Dave! I saw it on Warren Ellis’ blog late last night. Cool stuff huh!
