During the Samsung Developer Conference, the company discovered that it is working on software that will potentially allow users to control TVs using their mind
IDEAS to control the subject using our mind, it looks like a scene from a science fiction movie or story, but in reality it is not so unattainable. In the past, we used our brains, we can control devices such as wheelchairs, which makes using the brain to control the TV does not seem so impossible. In fact, during the Samsung Developer Conference, the company discovered that it is working on software that will potentially enable users to control their TVs with their brains.
According to Samsung, work on such a project began three months ago in cooperation with the Neuroprotetics Center at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, with the aim of enabling people with limited capabilities to control their devices.

According to Ricardo Chavarriagi, a senior scientist at EPFL, who is also working on the project "How can we provide access to people who can not move or have extreme limitations in their movements." We create a more complex technology that is more intelligent, but we should not forget that that this technology is created to connect with people. "
Samsung is not alone in trying to use technology to help people with disabilities. Netflix engineers used the TrueDepth camera on the iPhone X for visual navigation during Netflix Hacking Day.
