IBM Predicts 'Mind-Control Devices' the Next Big Thing.

Mind-controled devices have been around for some time now and are certainly not science fiction, but a reality. IBM recently announced and predicted in their annual Five in Five 2011 that mind-controlled devices are to be the 'next big' thing and common place in the next few years to come. 
The predictions include self-powered homes through recycling kinetic energy, the replacement of passwords with biometric data, and mind-controlled devices that obey your thoughts. Researchers at IBM are working on ways to connect the human mind to computers and smartphones, such that phone calls can be placed by simply thinking. IBM has been working on bioinformatics headsets that can read electrical brain activity and recognize facial expressions and see this technology applied first in gaming and entertainment within the next five years.
