Taking us one step closer to the future, Thinker Thing has developed technology that allows you to create things with your mind. Using signals from your brain and a 3D printer, the platform creates exactly what you are thinking of. In effect, the program gives you the ability to make objects in your mind materialize.

Thinker Thing aims to allow anyone to create objects. Current 3D printing technology requires the use of complex computer design software to create anything. According to the developer’s website, a "high resolution neuro signal acquisition and processing wireless neuroheadset" is used to read impulses from your brain. The data is then fed into software that creates a 3D model from your thoughts. That model can then be printed.
