In the 1970s, scientists started drilling into peoples’ skulls.
Their goal was to create a mind-control device, or as they called it, a brain-computer interface.
Such devices were used for medical purposes — for example, to regulate tremors in Parkinson’s patients, or to restore movement in paralyzed people.
But now a new kind of mind-control technology is emerging. It can literally read your mind and instantly act on your thoughts. And it’s wearable, so no drilling is required.
Soldiers could use it to communicate with weapons systems, and ordinary folks like us could use it to trade stocks, drive our cars, make complicated travel plans, and so much more.
Just imagine the impact this could have…
And imagine the windfall of profits its early investors could earn.
Well, that’s why I’m writing you today. You see, a new startup is developing a device like this right now. Its creators are neuroscience experts from DARPA, Neuralink, and Stanford.
And as you’re about to learn, you can invest in it for as little as $100.
The “Old Way” of Doing Things
The Personal Computer revolution changed everything…
PCs gave us a powerful new way to process words, numbers, and data.
Then, internet-connected smartphones and voice-activated devices like Siri kept the revolution alive.
But now, something new is taking shape…
A startup called MindPortal is creating a wearable device that can understand your thoughts.
You can simply THINK about what you’d like to do — and your goals will be manifested.
Here’s one of its founders with an early version of the device:
Here’s how it works:
- This device can detect the specific brain activity that underlies our goals.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) identifies this activity and uses it to decode our goals.
- AI then takes action to generate the results we’re seeking.
Does it seem like magic? It sure does to me.
Such a device offers two mind-blowing capabilities:
First of all, it offers “mind-machine telepathy” — in other words, the ability to communicate with software using your thoughts.
And secondly, it’s capable of sending experiences directly to your mind…
For example, if you go skydiving, or take a trip to Paris, or get married on the beach, you can encode those experiences directly to your cerebral cortex so they’re saved perfectly — just like you’d save a file to your computer’s hard drive.
Imagine being able to relive those experiences, in vivid detail, again and again!
The Investment Opportunity
How big could this get?
Well, the PC market alone is worth $800 billion, and this startup’s device could be your next PC.
Tomorrow, April 8th, the company opens an investment round to raise $3 million.
Anyone can invest in this deal, regardless of net worth or income. The minimum is $100, and the valuation is $20 million.
Should you invest? Let’s take a look.
Investment Pros and Cons
On the “pro” side:
First of all, this is a big idea. Again, the PC market alone is worth $800 billion.
Secondly, the team is strong. Its members have top academic credentials, and experience from DARPA and Elon Musk’s Neuralink.
Thirdly, it’s already attracted top investors including Y Combinator (an accelerator whose prior investments include Airbnb, Dropbox, and Instacart), and 7percent Ventures (the first investor in Oculus VR, which was acquired by Facebook for $2.3 billion).
On the con side, with a market opportunity of this size, competition will be fierce — not just from Neuralink, but from startups like Kernal, Neurable, and OpenWater.
A Great Place to Start Your Search
Keep in mind, I’m not recommending that you go out and blindly invest in MindPortal.
This is an early-stage venture, so you need to do substantial research before making an investment decision.
But if you’re intrigued about a market that could deliver the next iteration of the Personal Computer, this is a great place to start your search!
Again, this startup’s investment round opens tomorrow, Thursday.
