Oh hamburgers! Wii2 here it comes.....

This is relativity easy anyone who uses an oscilloscope can watch this behavior, maybe its one of those thing that are really exiting but have no point at all in the real market.

Ding ding ding, we have a winner. Reasons this kind of tech will never been used in anything but toys and novelty products:

* Makes everything it goes into more costly, much harder to secure and far more prone to failure.
* Has little practical application in the real world.
* Any attempt at wide-scale application within an industry will result in competing standards that will kill any hope of acceptance.

That having been said, I fully support this kind of research. The next big thing sometimes comes from the thing that really never had a chance.

Very cute, but ultimately I believe that control via thought is going to be the next great leap forward - we are already approaching that eventuality.
