Facebook is working on project that will allow you type with your brain and 'hear with your skin'

Facebook, has revealed its is working on a new tech project that will allow users to type with their brain.

The  project working to create a brain-computer interface that lets you type with your thoughts. Regina Dugan, a former director of DARPA and the ex-head of Google’s experimental ATAP research group, announced at Facebook’s F8 developer conference. Dugan, who now heads up Building 8, says the goal is “something as simple as s yes-no brain click” that could fundamentally change how we interact with and use technology.
The project is part of Facebook's consumer hardware lab known as Building 8, as Business Insider first reported in January. Little had been publicly revealed about Building 8 until Wednesday, when Facebook took the wraps off the division's first two projects at its annual developers conference in San Jose, California.
Building 8 chief Regina Dugan said her team of 60 scientists was working on a noninvasive system capable of typing 100 words per minute using only brain waves. An even more futuristic project intends to deliver spoken language through human skin.

The goal is to be able to think in Mandarin and feel in Spanish, according to Dugan, who joined Facebook last year from Google's advanced projects division.

Dugan, described both of the projects as "silent speech interfaces," which she said would offer the convenience of speaking with your voice but the privacy of sending a text message.
