Accessories Keep Brains Safe From Mind-Reading Tech [Pics]
Fabrica's Lisa Kori and Caitlin Morris design chic trimmings to protect your mental privacy.
These couture adornments carry alert wearers to Neuro-Imaging Surveillance (NIS) scans. This technology, currently used for medical purposes, can scan the brain to see which portions are active, which may betray what a person is thinking or feeling.
The anti-NIS accessories have built-in sensors to detect brain scans but they cannot block the scan without heavier, less subtle technology. Instead, the pieces use lights, bone-conduced sound, or electric shocks to momentarily distract the user, thus preventing the scan from seeing their previous mental state. Kori and Morris’s anti-NIS line made its debut at the Futures10 exhibition during the Wearable Futures festival in London.
