Samsung is researching ways to bring mind control to its tablets using a Galaxy Note 10.1 and a cap with EEG-monitoring electrodes, reports MIT Technology Review.

In collaboration with Roozbeh Jafari, an assistant professor of electrical engineering at the University of Texas, Dallas, Samsung researchers are testing how people can use their thoughts to launch an application, select a contact, select a song from a playlist, or power up or down a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. While Samsung has no immediate plans to offer a brain-controlled phone, the early-stage research, which involves a cap studded with EEG-monitoring electrodes, shows how a brain-computer interface could help people with mobility issues complete tasks that would otherwise be impossible.

“Several years ago, a small keypad was the only input modality to control the phone, but nowadays the user can use voice, touch, gesture, and eye movement to control and interact with mobile devices,” said Insoo Kim, Samsung's lead researcher. “Adding more input modalities will provide us with more convenient and richer ways of interacting with mobile devices.”

I agree with morons. This is stupid technology that only stoopid orientals need because they want to copy apple and have everything first even when someone else has thought of it years ago. It's like the first tablet is the new iPhone.

So basically, when a sexy lady passes by and you've got a boner, your Samsung device will automatically open a porn site?
