MIT Researchers meld iPhone and EPOC Neuro-headset. Dial home with a thought

Remember the Emotiv EPOC neuro-headset we featured last year? Well, a group of MIT brainiacs (pun intended) have developed a method to use the EPOC to control an iPhone.

Dubbed the ‘neurophone’, it lets you ‘think’ of a contact and then dial, all without touching the screen or pressing any buttons. Incidentally, the emotiv EPOC is a real headset that you can buy right now for $299.

The video below isn’t that entertaining, but it shows in under 2 mins what this really means:

Naturally, the next step will be to be bring down the headset’s size, and then to have the software natively embedded in the phone.
