Facebook said yesterday that it bought New York-based CTRL-labs, a start-up that is exploring ways for people to communicate with computers using brain signals, in a deal that CNBC was valued at 1 billion US dollars.

Media reports said CTRL-labs is working with brain science and machine learning to create interfaces for people to control and manipulate computers by thinking.

Its development-stage wrist-worn device uses sensors to track gestures and would act as an input device.
