Brainwave-reading patents spike on commercial mind-reading apps

More developers are creating commercial applications that use brainwave-reading technology that was previously found only in the medical field.

Last year, brainwave-reading patents quadrupled compared to 2010 and doubled over 2012, according to SharpBrains, a market researcher focused on this type of technology. Sharpbrains CEO Alvara Fernandez said "[the] expansion into non-medical use shows that we are at the dawn of the pervasive non-medical neuro-technology age," explaining the spike in patents.
