Nerds control videogames using MIND POWERS

It has always been the dream of lazy gamers and geeks alike: the ability to control things with one's mind, Jedi-style. Thankfully, some enterprising students at Cornell have brought us one step closer to that dream being a reality.

Of course, it's not quite the first time someone's made this sort of thing manifest—though it helps when George Lucas is not all over your back with lawsuits. And it'd be nice if the videogame Charles Moyes and Mengxiang Jiang rigged up to their EEG mind-reading machine wasn't just Pong.

But, still: Most impressive.

Oh, and the total cost of this project: $64.36. Friggin' geniuses ....
