WASHINGTON: You may be spared from typing pesky passwords in future! Instead of typing your password, you may only have to think about it, thanks to a new wireless headset device developed by researchers.
Remembering passwords for all your sites can get annoying. There are only so many punctuation, number substitutes and uppercase variations you can recall, and writing them down for all to find is hardly an option.
Brainwaves are also unique to each individual, so even if someone knew your passthought, their emitted EEG signals would be different. “Other than the EEG sensor, the headset is indistinguishable from a conventional Bluetooth headset for use with mobiles, music players and other devices,” they said.
