Mind-Computer Interface

<![CDATA[news @ nature.com – Computer users move themselves with the mind – Electrode cap allows users to think themselves along a virtual street.:

Computer scientists have created a hat that can read your thoughts. It allows you to stroll down a virtual street. All you have to do is think about walking.

Called a brain-computer interface, the device detects activity in certain brain areas linked to movement, and uses the signals to mimic that movement in a virtual world. The technology could one day help paralysed patients to move robotic arms, or help sufferers of motor neuron disease to type out words on a virtual keyboard.

Very slick, heralding the return of the bowler hat, too. Trust me on this: Bowler hats are the next hot investment.
