    our department does a lot of research on EEGs and Brain Computer Interfaces, and let me tell you that these things don't "read your mind" - they look for patterns in your brain and attempt to assign an action to that pattern ..... it can take a lot of "hit and miss" before the BCI actually will respond well to your "thoughts", but it isn't like a matrix plug in or anything....

    The way biofeedback works and with BCI, getting the cursor to move to the right might require you to think about Apple Pies. It's almost entirely random the patterns that it looks for, but once it's done that you can use the device fairly reliably. Hands free chess, anyone?!

    ^ it does REALLY work, already, for paralyzed people or anyone wiht intact language functioning. The biggest problem right now is the # of errors it makes - even with a trained user, it has like a 10-15 % error rate

    ^ while it has potential to return great profit, I think it'd still carry a high risk - it's a smaller company and they tend to fold very often for a variety of reasons.

    Don't forget, there were thousands of "amazons" before amazon.com became what we know it as.
