    Ummm... I didn`t read it but I think itsa bit of a repost. I don`t know if the other one said if it was at a trade fair, but i`m sure the gist is the same. Still cool though. And no, that was a speech recognition thing, those have been around for a long time.

    Deja vu. Why do I feel like I`ve read about this sort of thing b4?

    Anyway... it`d be cool if our future children could write school papers and such solely by the power of their minds.

    Yeeeeah.

    If I had to right a paper with one of those things, it`d be constantly punctuated with random thoughts. Much like this one.

    It amazes me how no one seemed to actually read it. You control a <b>cursor</b>, NOT direct thought. Your brain moves the cursor around the screen.

    I assume that this allows users to type on an on-screen keyboard. My question would be if this is practical, and, with practice, easier and faster than a keyboard.

    In addition, this could make a great tool for an artist, especially with abstract art. While it would not generate an image based on your thoughts, it could read the cursor movements you give it to form smooth, perfect lines based on the potential path. Of course, all the current mouse paths are likely strait lines, so the program would become more complicated.

    If this is released commercially, I would likely buy one if it is available to the public.

    Its not for "laziness" it`s also for people with paralyzed limbs who don`t have the ability to use their hands >_>
