I still don't know how I feel about it, but now it's getting some attention in the mainstream press as a way to prevent hijackings. Basically, it's a super advanced form of a lie-detector test that tracks your brain waves. The creator suggests that it doesn't make mistakes, which seems like a pretty bold claim.
