Microsoft has patented a mining system that uses human body activity data to extract digital money. The user will be able to receive rewards in the form of cryptocurrency for viewing ads or for performing physical exercises, according to a published document.
The system will connect using sensors to the human body and begin to read his heartbeat, brain signals and other data. Then the received information will be processed, and if they meet the pre-established criteria, the user will receive an award in the form of digital money.
“For example, a brain wave or body heat generated by a user when he performs a task provided by a provider of information or services, such as watching ads or using certain Internet services. All this can be involved in the mining process, ”the technology description says.
