Twitter Your Way Using Brain Power

The brain is a truly wonderful thing, and we don’t doubt its power as it can now send messages via Twitter without lifting a finger to type on a keyboard/keypad of any kind. Adam Wilson has come up with a brain interface enables one to post Twitter messages in a hands-off manner, although one might have to look dorky while at it by wearing an electrode cap that monitors the user’s brain functions to determine where they’re looking. The display will flash individual letters in the alphabet, and when the user focuses on that particular letter, it will react accordingly. Definitely slower than using a keyboard, but as technology progresses we expect it to work faster. So far an average user takes around one minute to “type” 10 characters, so forget about writing your year-end thesis with this.
