Controlling Computers With Your Mind
Interesting news on the futuristic technology front. A team of researchers at the University of California has been given a $4 million grant from the US Army to study synthetic telepathy. Basically, computer aided psychic communication. It's not all that crazy though. Essentially, this involves translating brain waves into instructions for a computer. A person could think “telephone the office”, which would in theory produce a unique pattern of brain waves that could be understood and executed by the computer.
