Researchers at the University of California Berkeley School of Information say they’ve made it possible to think your way into your PC using “pass thoughts.” A modified Bluetooth headset that costs about $100 reads brain waves via an EEG channel (the recording of the brain’s spontaneous electrical activity). Subjects had a difficult time finding pass thoughts that they didn’t consider boring, or agreeing on thoughts they wouldn’t mind thinking for 10-second intervals multiple times per day. In other words, in the future every single straight male’s pass thought is going to be Scarlett Johansson naked.
