Think about it
There should be a way to monitor the emotional state of other people for signs of depression, uncontrolled anger, suicidal indicators, etc., using BCIs. I know that the military has identified issues with Soldiers' mental health and has begun to incorporate new total fitness programs that are geared towards eliminating the stigma that showing emotion or needed medication is a weakness. Could not a BCI be used to check how a person feels below the surface, beyond their responses? Could we peer into the mind of the wearer, and see what they feel?
