    How does the idea of a thought-controlled tablet strike you? Sounds like something in the realm of science fiction, right? Not necessarily. In fact, the technology may not be that far off. Samsung and researchers at the University of Texas are actively working on ways for us to do just that. In fact, they have already demonstrated limited functionality of this technology by wiring a Galaxy Note 10.1 up to an EEG electrode equipped cap. Here's a quote with a few more details,

    They made it clear that the process of setting up this tech to work takes a great deal of time and is uncomfortable, so it's not something they plan to offer on retail shelves anytime soon. Still, it's interesting to see them pushing technology forward with innovative new ideas. What do you guys think?

    That's a sweet hat. I can't find one on Amazon though. I thought they had everything.
