gotta say, thats pretty cool.. lol. If they can find a way to fit that into a case like they do with the extra battery (and find a way to not have electrodes all over your head), they would sell a crap ton.

I wonder if they came up with the tech it used that novelty headset for PC that did the same. I remember watching a review of the headset on G4's AOTS when cod world at war was still popular.

[iPhone 4 owner here] you bet Apple will steal the idea and say "This changes everything, again. Now you can think about it, and Siri will do it for you. This is the best iPhone ever...."

" Let's face facts here, using your hands to control your smartphone was for suckers, so we got ourselves some voice commands. Well, it turns out voice commands are for suckers too, "Jajjaja

I knew the second that I saw this title it was fake. You will never mind control your iPhone. Your iPhone will control you.
AND JUST SO THERE IS NO CONFUSION, disclaimer time:
THE FIRST PARAGRAPH OF THIS COMMENT WAS A JOKE.

Apple has already mind control in their products.
Look at the fans and marketing practices
