May the force be with you..

As a kid, I was really fascinated with "Star Wars" in general, and the aforesaid lines from Master Yoda in particular. For the uninitiated Yoda is the famous Jedi Master in the 'Star Wars' universe, who is a strong proponent of 'the Force' (a binding, metaphysical and ubiquitous power in Star Wars universe).

'The force' might be a figment of imagination of George Lucas, but it was intriguing nonetheless. I was really fascinated about a particular scene in 'The Empire Strikes Back', where Master Yoda teaches Luke Skywalker on how to use your mind power to interact with 'the Force' and move mundane (and almost always heavy..) objects from one place to another, without batting an eyelid.... I wished I could do that..

But that was then..

Coming back to our real world, how about moving a real object by just thinking about it? fascinating?? There is a new start-up company named nuerosky, who have developed a technology called Brain Computer Interface (BCI). BCI let's you catch your brainwaves and translate your thoughts to actions!!! (well almost...).

Check it out... And may the force be with you..
