Fancy becoming Telekinetic?

The BBC are reporting today that a US/Australian firm Emotiv has developed a headset which:

reads electrical impulses in the brain and translates them into commands that a video game can accept and control the game dynamically

This is the headset in action:

The headset is due to go on sale later this year for around $299.

I wonder though if there are more worthwhile uses of this technology. I’m thinking particularly of applications for people with disabilities…

One thought on “Fancy becoming Telekinetic?”

  1. It reminds me of the Clint Eastwood film Firefox and the thought guided plane. Do you have to think like a certain ethnic group to get this unit to work? 🙂
