Facebook's secret mind-reading device may be revealed next  month.

Facebook is planning to launch at least four new consumer products, which are expected to be revealed in April event, reliable sources say. Facebook, one among the largest social network came with a futuristic hardware division called Building 8 last year. This invention is said to be similar to Google X, the experimental lab behind the search company’s self-driving cars. One of the prototypes created by Building 8 is a “brain computer interface” that sounds a lot like a platform once hinted at by Mark Zuckerberg, which would allow users to share information telepathically. Facebook’s CEO described  last year in a Q&A how people would be able to “capture a thought, what you’re thinking or feeling in kind of its ideal and perfect form in your head, and be able to share that with the world”. The latest reports say, more information on these will be revealed at Facebook’s developer conference next month alongside a drone, an augmented reality device and a medical project being led by “an interventional cardiologist from Stanford with expertise in early-stage medical device development”. Despite having minimal experience in the world of hardware, the company plans to sell millions of units of the Building 8 product. Snap Inc., the company behind Snapchat, is incidentally also believed to be working on a drone.
