They think she’s controlling,” the source told US Weekly, per a New York Post report. Munn has long been believed to be the primary source of a longstanding estrangement between Rodgers and his family. A source once stated that the actress has a “strong personality” and that “every meeting she has had with [Rodgers’ family] has gone badly” since the supercouple began dating in 2014.

The development efforts include systems that will allow people to type using their thoughts -- or hear through their skin.

Driven by the company's year-old hardware group, known as Building 8, the projects are among Facebook's most advanced efforts yet to realize its mission of connecting the human race.

"What if you could type directly from your brain? It's closer than you think," said Regina Dugan, the head of Building 8 research, who unveiled the projects during a speech to the company's annual developer conference in San Jose, CA. Dugan joined Facebook in 2016 from Google, where she led a similar group working on advanced projects; prior to that she was a director of DARPA, a U.S. Defense Department group with a similar mission.

Such a product could allow the deaf and blind to communicate more easily -- or allow everyone else "to type five times faster than you can on a smartphone," according to Dugan.

The efforts take advantage of the immense computing power of the human brain, which can stream 40 high-definition movies at any moment, Dugan said.

"If we fail, it's going to suck," Dugan said.
