I read this fascinating story today on CNN.com. Researchers have discovered a way to "type" by simply using electrical impulses generated by thought. By concentrating on a letter, it appears on the screen.
We all know that, inevitably, this technology will not be used strictly by people who can't use a keyboard in the traditional way. Eventually, we'll all be sending e-mails with our general electrical brain impulses.
Have you ever hit "send" without proofreading your e-mail or without confirming that you didn't hit "reply all" instead of just "reply?" Yes, you have. What's going to happen when your brain is "typing" your e-mails? Picture Jim Carrey in "Liar Liar."
