Oh yeah?   Well I've had a monkey controling my arms for decades now.  Laughing





Sorry, couldnt resist.... On topic this is fasinating, although I feel for the primates.

Okay...so the strange thing is...

If we don't have to type or click or move faders, we should be able to work faster, right?  I mean, by the time I've clicked on a menu, I already know which submenu I'm going to pick, so my ability to click the mouse is slowing me down...

Okay so if I can control what I type just by thinking about it, then I don't need a keyboard for e-mail.  Which means perhaps you don't have to type back...which means we can communicate much faster...

But taking this a step further...if I can think something and it gets typed in e-mail, sent to you across the Internet, and you can read it, what is stopping us from communicating with each other just by "thinking" to each other?  As long as you have a decoder to decode my "e-mail" and I have a decoder for yours?  Who even needs to read?  The thoughts can go directly to our brains.  

And why not simply "think" the audio?  The ultimate live performance?
