IBM 5 in 5 2011 Mind Reading
From Houdini to Skywalker, mind reading has merely been "wishful thinking" for science fiction fans for decades, but their wish may soon come true.
Within 5 years, we will begin to see early applications of this technology beyond PC games, doctors could use the technology to test brain patterns, possibly even assist in rehabilitation and to help in understanding brain disorders, such as autism.
IBM scientists are researching how to link your brain to your devices, such as a computer or a smartphone, so you just need to think about calling someone and it happens.
And perhaps many years in the future, if you want to type something, no need to say a word or hit a single key -- echoing the famous IBM motto, just think.
