Now Just Thinking Of Password Will Open Your Accounts

Yes the title of this article will come 100 percent true in near future. As a alternative of typing your password you just have to imagine about it. Yes in near future you will get rid off typing wretched passwords. 

And all this comes true just because of a new wireless headset device developed by researchers.

It become very difficult to remember passwords of every account unless you note it down. You have accounts in mails, social-networking’s sites, your website c panels  your bank accounts and many more depends on your usage of internet. Remembering passwords for all this sites can get maddening. Every different site has his own requirement for passwords and you have to fulfill them.

But now researchers at the University of California Berkeley School of Information developed the device that explores the possibility of brainwave-based computer authentication as a alternative for passwords. Just by measuring brain-waves with bio-sensor technology, researchers are able to replace passwords with "pass thoughts" for computer authentication.

A US $ 100 headset wirelessly connects to a computer via Bluetooth, and the device's sensor rests against the user's forehead, providing a electroencephalogram (EEG) signal from the brain. The NeuroSky Mindset looks just like any other Bluetooth set and is more user-friendly, researchers said.

Participants, in a series of tests, completed seven different mental tasks with the device, including imagining their finger moving up and down and choosing a personalized secret, the report said. 

Simple actions like focusing on breathing or on a thought for ten seconds resulted in successful authentication.
