I am wondering how easy it will be to start using the brain band interface for surfing, channel selection, volume control, etc.. I would think that a lot of processing power will be needed if there will be support for complicated actions. Perhaps it will support drop down menus and could use a possible voice input to augment the control and features supported. It would lead new meaning the to phrase "thinking out loud"..
It has to be a only matter of time before we quit having to use the traditional interfaces between humans and devices, i.e. sight, sounds, and touch, and go directly into a brain interface. It would certainly be preferable to make this interface wireless (!!).
For the longest time, I've joked about a standard plug embedded in our belly button. This headband idea seems way better.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
