Mark Zuckerberg has claimed that Facebook users in the future will be able to share telepathic thoughts.
The claims were made during a live Q&A session on his Facebook page but he also admitted that the feature was probably “decades” away regardless of the natural privacy concerns.
The CEO said “You’re going to just be able to capture a thought, what you’re thinking or feeling in kind of its ideal and perfect form in your head, and be able to share that with the world in a format where they can get that. There’s some pretty crazy brain research going on that suggests we might be able to do this at some point.”
The main focus of the Q&A was a public demonstration of Facebook’s new live video feature. The new feature allows users to broadcast live footage around the world by simply using their webcams.
The Facebook founder said that the feature’s origins stemmed from internal Q&A’s held with colleagues over the years.
Zuckerberg also took the opportunity to praise the response of Facebook users following the shootings in Orlando, USA.
The comedian Jerry Seinfeld “gate crashed” the Q&A and discussed topics such as the CEO’s triathlon interests, his broken arm as well as his daughter.
