Nissan Is Introducing Cars That Will Read Your Brain Waves

Nissan is taking car technology up a notch with the latest brain-to-vehicle technology it plans to unveil at this years’ Consumer Electronic Show. According to MotorTrend, the technology will be able to interpret signals from the driver’s brain and predict what they will do next and assist them if needed. All the driver needs to do is put on a device that can measure brain wave activity and the system can then detect any movement the driver is about to do. After the system determines what the driver is doing, like stopping or turning, it can then help the driver. Nissan says this technology will help improve driver reaction time. Would you want your car reading your brain waves?
