Brain-Computer Interface... Fool's Gold
Brain-Computer Interface…Glittering but not Golden
For the first time in recorded history, people have the opportunity to become early adopters of an emerging mind-interface technology that is about to transform human civilization. We are not talking about Brain-Computer Interface (BCI). We are talking about super-human mental abilities being triggered and amplified through advanced technology from Interchange Laboratories.
The Limitations of Brain-Computer Interface
Despite the many news articles and public discussions about Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technologies defining our future, BCI is not something you want to invest in now or in the future. Why? Because it is about to be superseded by an advanced mind-interface technology that operates at the subatomic level beyond anything achievable through BCI.
The BCI industry is like the vacuum tube industry during the early 1950s when transistors started to be used in the electronics industry. During this period, when faced with transistors that were smaller and more rugged, some vacuum tube manufacturers decided to circle the wagons and build smaller vacuum tubes in order to compete. This may have bought them a little bit of time but in the end, transistors became ubiquitous throughout the world and the use of vacuum tubes declined to the point where today, vacuum tubes serve only a limited niche market.
In 1946, the ENIAC computer used 17,468 vacuum tubes. It weighed more than 27 tons and took up 1800 square feet. It was the fastest computer on the planet, capable of 5,000 additions per second.
By contrast, transistors have become smaller and faster by many orders of magnitude. Today, a typical desktop computer performs at least one-million calculations per second.
The point is that BCI is limited in speed and to the distance from a person’s brain being monitored. It may appear promising in the short term, but it lacks the capabilities required to move humanity into the future and into space.
Mind Interface, the Technology of the Future
The patented and patent-pending mind-interface technologies from Interchange Laboratories, Inc. open the doorway into the future. Unlike BCI, which is mechanistic, tied to the brain and relatively slow, our advanced mind-interface technologies use plasma, the fourth state of matter, to allow a person to control electronic devices instantaneously over any distance and through any barrier. Comparing plasma-source mind-interface technologies to BCI is like comparing radio waves to smoke signals.
Is BCI a Risky Investment?
We would argue that it is because it is on track to become obsolete before it ever leaves the laboratory. If BCI were the only game in town, investing in it might be worth the wait. BCI cannot compete with plasma-source mind-interface technology operationally or cost-wise.
Low Risk, High Payoff from Interchange Laboratories
Interchange Laboratories’ mind-interface system is entering the product development stage to be converted from a lab system to a portable device close in size to a cell phone. This will make the technology affordable, rugged, and capable of driving a wide spectrum of applications. These include prosthetic hand controls, unmanned vehicle controls, secure, instantaneous communications, and secure database and facility access controls.

Market Size and Potential
One thing that you can be certain of is that BCI will become obsolete within the next few years. It is safe to say that market researchers are not aware of our emerging mind-interface technology that is about to displace BCI. That being said, market research companies are in general agreement about the size of the BCI market and the anticipated growth rate.
One such company, Strategic Market Research, reports the 2021 market value at $1.505 billion with a compound annual growth rate of 15.11% reaching a market value of $5.340 billion by 2030.
Interchange Laboratories stands to dominate the market share through licensing agreements and operations/training contracts for its technologies that make external brain-signal detectors and invasive brain implants completely unnecessary.
