This is just one of Facebook's efforts to decipher how the human brain works.

Facebook has just announced the acquisition of CTRL-Labs, a startup that develops communication devices between the brain and a computer. This could be an important step for the company to aim to "read" the user's brain.

According to Bloomberg, Facebook may have spent up to $ 1 billion to acquire CTRL-Labs. It became one of Facebook's biggest deals, and the biggest hardware deal after it bought Oculus for $ 2 billion in 2014.

"The vision of this project is to create a bracelet that allows the user to control the device with natural gestures. The spinal neurons will send signals from the brain to the muscles on the hands, out." The device will decode those signals and convert them into a digital signal that the device can understand, allowing you to control your digital life.

The bracelet can capture the user's intent, so you can share the photo with a small gesture, or just think about it, "explained Andrew Bosworth, director of hardware at Facebook.

The operation of CTRL-Labs sounds very promising, because it can make controlling virtual reality devices VR, AR simpler. However, many analysts believe that Facebook's own brand may affect the product that CTRL-Labs is developing.

"The problem is that the technology that CTRL-Labs is working on might not make sense when Facebook owns them instead of anyone else. In fact this is also an Oculus problem: Facebook's money is very useful, but their brand is also notoriously, "commented Stratechery's analyst Ben Thompson.

This is not Facebook's only attempt to study how the brain works. In July, the company announced it would work with researchers at the University of California to create communication devices. It helps decode signals in the brain from talking action.
