A device that reads people's minds through their brainwaves has been created by scientists.

It could lead to an 'easily-operated' machine that links up to smartphones in the next five years, the researchers said.

The breakthrough could one-day help handicapped people who struggle to speak to communicate again, such as those who have suffered a stroke.

It could be used as a 'telepathic typewriter' that automatically notes down what we are thinking.

The technology, from researchers at Japan's Toyohashi University of Technology, can recognise the numbers 0 to 9 with 90 per cent accuracy using brain waves.

Study participants uttered the numbers and the robot guessed in real-time based on real-time readings of an electroencephalogram (EEG) brain scan.

The mind-reading device was also able to recognise 18 types of Japanese symbols from EEG signals with a 60 per cent accuracy rate.

This, the researchers say, shows the possibility of an EEG-activated typewriter in the near future.

'Up until now, speech-decoding from EEG signals has had difficulty in collecting enough data to allow the use of powerful algorithms based on "deep learning" or other types of machine learning,' reads a university statement.

'The research group has developed a different research-framework that can achieve high performance with a small training data-set.
