We could soon be typing on our computers.... using only our brains.

LISTEN ABOVE: Larry Williams talks to technology commentator Paul Spain about one day being able to control your computer with your brain.

Facebook's working on technology which would decode brain activity that would normally create speech, and translate it into written text.

The social media company announced it eventually wants to make it available through a wearable cap.

Technology commentator Paul Spain told Larry Williams basic brain typing tech is already around... but Facebook's talking about taking it to the next level.

"It's pretty incredible if they can pull it off, but they haven't pulled it off yet, they're talking about something at some point in the future."
