Tan Le: A headset that reads your brainwaves.....

Another great Technology Entertainment Design video -TEDGlobal 2010 July 

(On, they make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free.)

A Headset that reads your brainwaves: 
Here is some of the transcript:

Based on the latest developments in neuro-technology, Emotiv has developed a revolutionary new personal interface for human computer interaction. The limited edition EPOC is released in the US in limited quantities.
Although the developers are interested in its application in the following four areas:

Artistic and creative expression -

Life changing applications for disabled patients, such as controlling an electric wheelchair, mind-keyboard, or playing a hands-free game.

Games & Virtual Worlds -

Market Research & Advertising-

I am most interested in how this technology may assist our students who have limited movement- Life changing applications for disabled patients.  I can see this technology having great applications in their life and learnings.
