WOW, A Mind-Controlled Skateboard (video)

Looking back, mind-control devices have come a long way from mind-controlled cars, toys and prothetic limbs (to name a few)... 

Chaotic Moon Labs have taken the power of the mind to another level with their Board of Imagination. It is essentially a skateboard that is controlled with thought (see video below)
So how does it work? The integrated Emotiv EPOC headset is worn by the rider and translates their brain waves into actions. To throw yourself down the road (or up the hill) at up to 32 MPH now, you simply imagine yourself moving to the spot you desire and our Emotive headset picks up your brainwaves, massages your theta waves (among others) with the Emotive Engine and then sets the motor controller to the correct speed to make your imagination a reality. This gives reality to one of Walt Disney’s favorite phrases: “If you dream it, you can do it!” And in our case, if you imagine yourself going somewhere on the Board of Imagination, you can go there!

Don't know about you, but I don't think I'll be hitting the half-pipe anytime soon... :)
