Netflix Experimenting With Thought Control Remotes

Netflix Experimenting With Thought Control Remotes

Netflix just revealed they’re working on a hands-free remote control, made by Muse, called MindFlix. The device is worn like a headband and permits the wearer to move their head up/down/left/right to select content. However, it gets really weird when you can think the word “play” and the content will start. Netflix says the device actually detects brainwaves and can respond accordingly. That’s creepy as heck.
