Meta wants to get in your personal space to make extended reality more, well, real. The company filed two patents for tools that read your body’s neural and muscular signals for use in controlling the metaverse. 

First up is Meta’s patent for “in-ear electroencephalography [EEG] signal verification.” This system includes an in-ear device with an electrode that’s “configured to be in contact with an inner surface of the ear canal,” a speaker that emits a “calibration audio signal,” and a controller for generating “neural signal data” based on the signals from the electrode. 

Meta also is seeking to patent a system for “neuromuscular-signal-based detection” of in-air hand gestures. These gestures allow users to produce and modify text in extended reality environments.
