Over the next few weeks, a company called Kernel will begin sending dozens of customers across the U.S. a $50,000 helmet that can, crudely speaking, read their mind. Weighing a couple of pounds each, the helmets contain nests of sensors and other electronics that measure and analyze a brain’s electrical impulses and blood flow at the speed of thought, providing a window into how the organ responds to the world. The basic technology has been around for years, but it’s usually found in room-size machines that can cost millions of dollars and require patients to sit still in a clinical setting.
The promise of a leagues-more-affordable technology that anyone can wear and walk around with is, well, mind-bending. Excited researchers anticipate using the helmets to gain insight into brain aging, mental disorders, concussions, strokes, and the mechanics behind previously metaphysical experiences such as meditation and psychedelic trips. “To make progress on all the fronts that we need to as a society, we have to bring the brain online,” says Bryan Johnson, who’s spent more than five years and raised about $110 million—half of it his own money—to develop the helmets.
Mind Reading no more a fiction: Chinese Government upgrading Industrial helmets with “Brainwave Monitors”
In China, a new kind of sophisticated equipment is incorporated for telecommunication and other industrial sectors.
But there’s one big difference – the workers wear caps to monitor their brainwaves, data then analyzed to enhance the pace of production and redesign workflows, according to the company.
The company explains this “monitoring” process,by manipulating the frequency through the electronic input via helmet, elevates the gross efficiency of the workers.This method is further processed to schedule adequate period of leaves and break times.
” Hangzhou Zhongheng Electric is simply one among the large-scale utilization of cerebral surveillance to monitor worker’s emotions and “mental activities” “-says scientists and companies with ties in the government-backed projects.
These lightweight helmets and seemingly uniform hats are intricated with wireless sensors.These sensors constantly imbibe wearer’s brainwaves and upload the data into computers.These computers are “armed’ with artificial intelligence algorithms which detect emotional spikes namely depression, anxiety and rage..

Will I have to shave my head to get a more accurate reading? Doc tried this in 1955 and thought Marty was there from the Coast Guard Youth Auxiliary. It didn't work then, I don't see it working now.
