Brainwave of the future?

Over the years, we’ve seen–and been somewhat skeptical about–various biofeedback devices for computer control. We don’t know if this Japanese prototype presents any breakthroughs in reliability for that purpose, but we do like that it’s wireless and that its initial claim is reasonably modest–monitoring brainwave activity to wake you up when you’re doing drowsing-incompatible tasks, such as driving. Plus it’s housed in a baseball cap, so you look reasonably cool wearing it. If that also meant we could take it to Wrigley Field and secretly use it to control the pitching, we’d buy it in a heartbeat.
