In the hands of a master, anything can become a field improvised, lethal object.

HA! I gues it's a start, but by the time it has the same response as my G9 laser mouse, imagine what the actual mice will be like! I could see it possible for cartain applications, but def. not for gaming.

I don't know about this but that controller that uses your brain waves now that really makes me look forward to the future.

Im not sure, but I think you might be thinking about the OCZ band?  If you are, it uses movement, not brain waves.  You do things like frown, clinch your teeth, and raise your eyebrows to use it.

There is a headset that has been in development for years. The technical preview shows a guy wearing the headset and on the computer he is raising a large boulder and is not moving a single muscle. They want to use the same technology for people with missing limbs. They show a monkey completely immobalized wearing a device that can be controlled via brain waves and the monkey uses a robotic arm that is controlled via brain waves to feed itself. So there are devices that have been in developement for almost a decade now.

It looks as if it has a lot of potential but they need to improve the lag between hand motions and response by the system.  It also doesnt appear to be the best for gaming, but it would be amazing in a school or busness enviornment.

I'm mixed on this. 1) It'll be great exercise for the gameplaying geeks.  2) My arm's will fall off after 10 minutes of gaming...
