This is neat.

It is interesting that they call this a subvocal system, which is the name David Brin used for his sci-fi invention (which does the exact same thing) in Earth, a pretty decent read. Here’s a hunk lifted from a a review of the book by Bryan Osborn.

There was also the similarity of telepathy. However, in Earth, Brin called it “subvocal”, and the receivers were computers. The following excerpt explains, “She didn’t have to speak aloud, only intend to. The subvocal read nerve signals, letting her enter words by just beginning to will them” (Brin, 283).

Brin has been a consultant to NASA at some time in his life, apparently.
