Shortly, Change your passwords with your thoughts

 

A new study suggests that instead of typing your password, you may only have to think about it.

 

Thanks to a new wireless headset device developed by researchers, “pass-thoughts” that allow you to access your account simply by thinking.

 

By using sensors to register electroencephalograms (EEGs), or brainwave measurements, computers can recognize brainwaves and allow you to access your accounts via pass-thoughts rather than by typing a code consisting of letters, numbers and other characters.

 

This brainwave-reading headset wirelessly connects to a computer via Bluetooth technology and the device's sensor rests against the user's forehead, providing an electroencephalogram (EEG) signal from the brain. The NeuroSky Mindset looks just like any other Bluetooth set and is more user-friendly, researchers said.

 

Brainwaves are also unique to each individual, so even if someone knew your pass thought, their emitted EEG signals would be different.

 

"Other than the EEG sensor, the headset is indistinguishable from a conventional Bluetooth headset to use with mobile phones, music players and other computing devices," said researchers.
