The Japanese government is collaborating with the private sector to develop mind-reading consumer electronics and robots that could be ready in 10 years. The robotic devices would make use of brain-machine interface technology, which would enable them to analyze the brain waves and brain blood-flow patterns of users, who would wear sensor-mounted headsets. For example, the technology would enable users to use their thoughts to control TVs or send text messages. A car navigation system could automatically search for restaurants when the driver gets hungry, and air conditioners could cool a room when it gets too warm. Also, robots could help older adults or people with disabilities. Toyota, Honda, and Hitachi, as well as the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology, Osaka University, and the Advanced Telecommunications Research Institute International are expected to be involved in the initiative.
