EG is the celebration of the American entertainment industry. Since 1984, Richard Saul Wurman has created extraordinary gatherings about learning and understanding. EG is a rich extension of these ideas - a conference that explores the attitude of understanding in music, film, television, radio, technology, advertising, gaming, interactivity and the web- The Entertainment Gathering

Awesome video. If this program/way of thinking ever goes public, we will end up becoming an even lazier race because we will be able to use this program not only for computers but probably for anything electronical like microwaves, telephones, televisions, etc. For some reason, the video reminds me of the movie Equilibrium.
LOL reminds me a bit about the Cyber Punk rpg. But for all it is worth, maybe the people in wheel chairs with no arm or leg mobility can utilize this tech for a better life. Then again when will we be able to just chip into our electronics for some real cyber punk action. lol
How to develop processes that are unexpected by the computer? So instead of working with the computer to activate a set command (rotate ccw, disappear), you are working with the computer to create a new command.
Wouldn't it be more meaningful to begin with application to the medical field? Disabled individuals? War veterans? Beuller? Beuller? Anyone?
Wonderful, fascinating technology! To read the mind! But what happens when we can begin to control others minds by stimulating their electrical impulses from our own headsets? Will we have Professor X extracting confessions from prisoners in the secret-secret (as opposed to secret and recently closed) CIA prisons? Oh no! The future is too complicated! I'm getting out while I can!
Again though, the imagination (from comics and science fiction to Tan Le's dinner chats) precedes reality! Are humans ready for this responsibility? Our thoughts immediately manifested into the real world? Sometimes I don't like the way my subconscious mind moves. Should I give it such free reign?
I thought this video was going to be cool... and it was! I guess I can control my computer without the headset thingy.
We talk about this post on episode eight of my podcast, scienceTASTIC. Check it out .
i'm sure that stephen hawking will be continuously accosted by not-so-subliminal advertisements as he is walking around and interacting directly with the physical world via his mind controlled exoskeleton....
