A baseball cap that reads your mind


It looks like an ordinary baseball cap. But when you put it on, the cap detects and analyzes the electroencephalogram (EEG) signals from your brain. It can even tell you if you’re getting too sleepy when driving based on your brain wave patterns. Similar technology could also allow you to control home electronics such as TVs, computers, and air conditioners, all by just thinking about them.

Cool enough, but I think I'll wait for v.2.0.

Some day, there will be performing artists that sit in chairs with hats on, thinking music.

A baseball cap that reads my mind, will undoubtedly be a somewhat disappointed baseball cap.

I sense a strange Kafka-Asimov mashup lurking somewhere in there.
