    I just got in the rabbit hole of brain computer interfaces and stumbled over this.
    Wearable MRI
    Our goal is to create a wearable to enable us to see the inner workings of the body and brain at high resolution. Using novel opto-electronics we aim to replace the functionality of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) with a true wearable enabling constant monitoring. Implications are broad for detection and treatment of cancer, cardiovascular diseases, internal bleeding, mental diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and beyond - for communication via thought.

    The founder seems credible (former Occulus exec and so on), here she describes the tech at MIT


    A longer and more recent interview (she also has some criticism for Elons approach)


    My mind is blown, let's see if she is able to pull it off

    "Wearable device that can read and write thoughts?" I got one of those already. Called a wife. She constantly hangs on to me and seems to know what I am thinking. :rolleyes:
