Throw away your keyboard and mouse, and start thinking to your computer

Technology and telecommunications entrepreneur Tan Le who co founded SASme (a pioneer in providing SMPP platforms to telecommunication carriers and content aggregators) and was named Young Australian of the year in 1998, these days is trying to scale up something which came a long way from being just a dream and vision. A vision to introduce immediacy of thought to the human-machine dialogue.

The Emotive Systems headquartered in San Francisco was founded by a team of renowned scientists and entrepreneurs. The founding team consists of recognized neuro scientist Professor Allan Snyder, chip design pioneer Neil Weste and entrepreneur Nam Do along with Tan Le.

    Wonder how it would be to have somebody hack into your device and make the controller device do something that is totally unpleasant..Maybe at some point in time, where these things would be a part of your life like our cellphones and other stuff, it would be a very interesting scenario.
