Mental Keyboard

nym | 07:53 AM
The idea of thinking things to control a computer is a compelling one, which may or may not turn out to be one of those science fiction fantasies like everyone owning rocket cars. Nevertheless, it's interesting, as it uses 128 electrodes on the user's scalp and a software program to translate the EEG signals into something useful. Currently it's painfully slow, taking 5 to 10 mintues to write a typical sentance, but hey, it used to be painfully slow to download pictures off the internet too, huh? Despite being so slow, this kind of technology can be amazingly useful to the disabled, so then again, maybe this tech has a real future for itself.
