Patent To Interpret Brain Waves

My power came back on about 6 hours ago, but I haven't seen anything to post today. Instead, I'll dig up an older article from my archive.

Slashdot had up a summary and some links about a patent that Microsoft filed to use and interpret EEG to read your brain. The problem with reading EEGs is that blinking can mess up the results that they want. The plan is to use it to improve their user interface.

Interesting stuff, though I have no interest in having Microsoft read my brain.
