Ping-pong session at DLD Munich 18: Author and MIT scientist Andrew McAfee and Openwater founder Mary Lou Jepsen ask each other questions. Mary Lou Jepsen is an expert on cutting-edge digital displays and explains: “You can watch people’s thoughts on a screen.” Openwater has the goal to see deep into the body with the detail of high resolution 3D camera. “We’re creating a wearable to enable us to see the inner workings of the body and brain in high resolution”. McAfee is not sure he wants someone to know his thoughts. But Jepsen makes clear that by using novel opto-electronics we could replace the functionality of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) with a true wearable enabling constant monitoring. Implications are broad for detection and treatment of cancer, internal bleeding, mental diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and beyond – for communication via thought.
