In 2009, a researcher sent a telepathic message to Twitter by thinking it.

(The telepathic communication era)

He was using his brain, as a computer input device, and the 'neural interfacing system BCI2000'.

A brain–computer interface (BCI) is a direct communication pathway between a brain and an external device. (Brain–computer interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

In 2009, the company Emotiv Systems launched a 'neural interface' called EPOC.

This is able to detect the user’s thoughts. (HowStuffWorks "How Brain-Computer Interfaces Work")

It then translates them to commands understandable by computer programs.

For severely disabled people the development of a brain-computer interface (BCI) could be a big breakthrough.

The United States military has been exploring applications for BCIs.

The US Army hopes the project will "lead to direct mental control of military systems by thought alone." (The Army's Totally Serious Mind-Control Project - TIME)
