    Default TECHNOLOGY: Dial your cell phone only with your THOUGHTS

    Some of the most cutting-edge interfaces ? technologies that even go beyond gestural interfaces like Microsoft?s Kinect ? might be much closer to implementation than you think.

    In fact, a group of researchers in San Diego have developed a system that allows users to dial a phone number on a cell phone using only their thoughts. The method is surprisingly accurate and would be a huge advantage for disabled people or anyone who needs a more hands-free experience or who regularly performs tasks that require a high degree of mental focus.

    Won't happen to me. I am wearing a tin foil hat everywhere. Didn't you read the other thread?

    If it has speed dial, the phone sex lines will be very busy.

    I don't know. With my attention span, I would get started on a call to a sex line and wind up ordering pizza.

    Jesse Ventura did an episode for TRU TV where he wanted to get onto the HAARP base-they were ready to shoot him !! This is just further research into a Manchurian candidate scenario -the brain reacts in such and such a manner when exposed to low level ELF beams . The scientists concluded that if an ELF can affect the brain why not vice versa ?
    I thought most of this stuff was still at implant stages -where they implant a device to boost a signal from part of the person's brain .
    You know, I think I would rather be a man than a god . We don't need anyone to believe in us. We just keep going anyhow. It's what we do.

    Would this be any more useful to these people than voice recognition dialing which is already widely available?
