It is expected that in the coming weeks, Kernel, a tech startup, will launch a special hat capable of reading the minds of users. The product will sell for $ 50,000.
The hat has sensors and many other electronic devices, which help measure and analyze the user’s brain electrical impulses and cerebral blood flow. From there, the product can provide data to reflect people’s thoughts.
Bryan Johnson, CEO of Kernel, has spent more than five years raising $ 110 million in funding. Mr. Johnson also contributed an equivalent amount to the project to produce this special hat.

When perfected in the future, the hat could help users better understand brain aging, mental disorders, strokes, and other brain activities.
Scientist Christof Koch of the Allen Brain Institute in Seattle called the Kernel Hat “revolutionary”. Therefore, until now, the birth of the hat has been a huge success.
