Control Siri with Your Brainwaves!

If you think controlling the iPhone's Siri with your voice is cool, imagine controlling it with your brainwaves. Project Black Mirror has an actual working prototype that controls the iPhone's Siri voice recognition app! Here's how they say it works:

1. ECG pads provide raw skin conductivity / electrical activity as analogue data (0-5v).
2. This is plugged into the Arduino board via 4 analogue inputs (no activity = 0v, high activity = 5v).
3. The Arduino has a program burnt to it’s EPROM  chip that filters the signals.
4. Josh trained the program by  thinking of the main Siri commands (“Call”, “Set”, “Diary” etc.) one at a time and the program where we  captured the signature brain patterns they produce.
5. The program can detect the signature patterns that indicate a certain word is being thought of. The program will  then wait for a natural ‘release’ in brain waves and assume the chain of commands is now complete and action is required.
6. The series of commands are fed to a SpeakJet speech synthesiser chip
7. The audio output of which simply plugs into the iPhone’s microphone jack.

Update: Forgot the demo video:

I so want to believe this is real and not some elaborate hoax. Mitchell Gant, the hero who will one day in the future steal the advanced Russian Firefox plane needs this technology to fire his reward missile! "Much think Russian. Think Russian."
