Researchers at Intel are looking into ways to control computers using nothing more than brain waves.

Researchers at Intel are looking into ways to control computers using nothing more than brain waves. The Pittsburgh-based Intel team hopes to decode human brain activity, with the ultimate goal being implantable chips which would enable users to control devices by thinking.

Computerworld explains:

the team has used Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (FMRI) machines to determine that blood flow changes in specific areas of the brain based on what word or image someone is thinking of. People tend to show the same brain patterns for similar thoughts, he added.
