“I figured out how to put basically the functionality of an M.R.I. machine — a multimillion-dollar M.R.I. machine — into a wearable in the form of a ski hat,” Jepson told CNBC.
So how does she hope to achieve this and is it possible?
Current M.R.I. technology can already see your thoughts: “If I threw you into an M.R.I. machine right now … I can tell you what words you’re about to say, what images are in your head. I can tell you what music you’re thinking of,” Jepsen said. “That’s today, and I’m talking about just shrinking that down,” she added.
For years, this type of technology has been successfully tested starting with the CIA testing electrodes to read thoughts during MKUltra, the “Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab” or PEAR for short and MIT.
From 1953 to 1973, the CIA was involved with all sorts of projects including — mind control, and reading, remote viewing and other experiments allegedly to target the Soviets and politicians. However, the experiments were done on non-consenting test subjects. And the official number of those tested is unknown since CIA Director Richard Helms destroyed all the records pertaining to the project.
Fifty some odd years later the black budget technology is coming out for public consumption in the clear world. Already, there are remote-controlled drones which are driven and robots that move their arms with the thoughts of your mind. The Chinese have tested using this technology for controlling robots for their soldiers and the list goes on and on, this isn’t new.
Jepsen isn’t the only Silicon valley technocrat trying to push mind reading technology.
