The wonders of technology. Only 40 years ago you could type "lift your right hand" and get the same result :o)

I'll feel pretty old when this kind of thing becomes mainstream, as I never saw it as part of my lifetime.

"...he imagined moving his right hand (being careful not to actually move his hand), causing a cursor to hit the "fire" button. Almost instantaneously, Stocco, who wore noise-canceling earbuds and wasn't looking at a computer screen, involuntarily moved his right index finger to push the space bar on the keyboard in front of him, as if firing the cannon."

They couldn't hook it up to a toaster and see if it could make perfectly golden brown toast... Nope, any new technology needs to be tested for it's ability to blow stuff up.

I read about a company a while ago that has some related "brain interface" technology: [braingate.com...]
