Forget the remote: a new Japanese technology can allow the user to control electronic devices simply by thinking.
The Hitachi-developed ‘brain-machine interface’ reads the slight changes in the brain’s blood flow and translates it into electric signals.
A cap connects by optical fibers to a mapping device, which in turn, links to whatever electronic device you want to control (i.e. the toy train set used in a recent Hitachi demonstration).
Oh crap, I just turn off my computer. I hate when I get those anti-blogging thoughts.
