Controlling Computers With Your Brain

from the oh,-the-power... dept

The latest news concerning the ability to control a computer directly from your brain waves. It’s initially being tested for work with people who are disabled, but (of course) there are plenty of possibilities as to where this could go. Anyway, did anyone else get chills down their spine and hear evil laughter in the background when they read the quote: “We’re beginning to understand brain activity. We can listen in on it. We can intercept it. We can interpret it.” I just hope they use these new found abilities for good, instead of evil.
