We have seen the future and it’s the “Mental Typewriter”. This brain-to-computer interface converts your thoughts into cursor movements on screen. Put simply, 128 electrodes are placed on your scalp and software than decodes EEG-like signals into usable information. Since this technology is still in its early stages, it takes 5 – 10 minutes to type out a simple sentence, with electrodes taking about an hour to apply.

From the article: “…but eventually researchers hope to make it possible for people with severe disabilities such as extensive paralysis, to communicate through computers.”
