Mind controlled mobile app allows disabled people to make calls.

ThinkContacts is a mobile app being developed for Nokia N900’s platform that enables disabled people to make a phone call using only their brain activity. The app requires a special headset that reads a user’s brainwaves to determine which contact from that they want to call.

Nokia has a wiki page about ThinkContacts that describes how it works:

The user controls the selection of the desired contact by controlling his/her level of meditation and attention. If the user’s level of attention is higher than 70% the software switches to the next contact in the list, if it is lower than 30% the software switches to the previous, otherwise the current contact will not be switched. If the user’s meditation level is higher than 80%, the software makes a phone call to the contact located at the center of the screen.
