Second Life… no hands

Using a brain-computer interface, folks are able to operate an avatar in Second Life. (Article)

While I don’t think doing simple things with computers via brain waves is all that new, it is cool to see it used in a ‘freely available’ virtual environment populated be all sorts of folks from around the world. (Instead some lonely server tucked away in a research facility.)

While I think this application is in its infancy, we can all agree it demonstrates interesting possibilities.

**Update**

NewWorld Notes has more. Looks like they will continue to push this forward.

Clickable Culture looks at some of the earlier attempts at this sort of thing.
