First with Kinect, now with mind control!

New technologies like using motion to control your console (Kinect) and using voice to control your phone is now nothing exciting. What IBM is planning in stores is something that would excite the geeks more, which is using your mind to control your computer.

As part of IBM's "5 in 5" forecasts of predictions, the company says that "minding reading" (more like mind control) will no longer be a science fiction dream and that within five years, we'll all be controlling our computers and smartphones by just wiggling our brains.

Well, the technology may come true in 5 years, but it could well take another couple of years before it reaches entry level price for the consumer market.
