Siri, Read My Mind: Did Hackers Just Build a Brain-Powered iPhone?
If you believe this video and thats a big if the era of thought-controlled phones has begun. A pair of hobbyist hackers claim to have taken Siri, the iPhone 4S feature that obeys voice commands, and turned it into an app that obeys brainwave patterns.

It works! It really works! Its so freaking amazing, Josh Evans and Ollie Hayward announced Tuesday on the blog they created to chronicle what they call Project Black Mirror.

In the accompanying YouTube video, Evans wears EEG pads on his forehead and squints in concentration. A circuit board attached to an iPhone on the table beeps shortly later, and a mechanical voice says calling Graham, the third member of the project, whose phone then rings.

The hackers explain that they used the EEG pads to record the signature brain patterns of 25 Siri-based commands. By pairing the signatures with the commands, they effectively create a brain pattern-to-voice dictionary.
