Dump the mouse, control PC with brain

Get ready to enter the world of thought-control with headsets that can read minds.

First we had keyboards and mouse for controlling our computers, before smartphones popularised the touchscreen movement. And then hardware such as the Xbox’s Kinect system made gesture controls feel like second-nature. Now, people are getting ready to enter the world of thought-control with headsets that can read our minds now available for as little as 300 pounds, and the software to transform our dreams into actions starting to take shape.

Kevin Brown, senior inventor at IBM, works to bridge the gap between budding technology and the practical applications they can provide to society.

He is already working hard to make everyday tasks easier through mind control, using headsets like the commercially-available Emotiv Systems headset.

The Emotiv headset retails for 299 dollars and can easily be plugged into any recent Windows machine to start working, with apps and games - including Angry Birds - being adapted by enthusiasts to run with simple mind controls.

“The current headsets can already pick up a range of sensory input from our brains, and this will only improve over time,” the Daily Mail quoted Kevin, who has been an IBM for 16 years, as saying.

Falcon 9: History to be made with first commercial space flight to International Space Station

On Saturday at 4.55 a.m (EST) a Falcon 9 rocket will launch from Cape Canaveral in Florida and hopefully become the first private commercial flight to rendezvous with the International Space Station (ISS).

Ferrying the Dragon capsule into space, the mission to the ISS will be to deliver 1,000 pounds of non-essential cargo after passing a series of test maneuvers over the course of three days.

If successful in its first-of-a kind mission, the company behind the venture SpaceX would collect the remaining payments on the $396 million contract it has with NASA and then enter into a $1.6 billion agreement for 11 more flights to the ISS.

The first step in the commercialisation of space to non-governmental firms, SpaceX are hoping one day to deliver up to seven passengers to the ISS and other destinations in low-Earth orbit.

The Falcon 9 rocket suffers from an "instantaneous launch window" which means that if they don't take off at the exact scheduled moment they will have to wait till 3.44 a.m on Tuesday for the pad and the ISS to line up again.

This will be the Falcon's third flight as SpaceX have already sent the projectile into space on two previous occasions.

Seven Year Old Set To Be The Youngest Doctor In The World


This seven year old girl could become the youngest doctor in the world one day. Selvi Bakkiashree is already able to recite over 1,000 medicine brands including ethambutol and filgrastrim.

She stunned doctors as well as India’s director of health with her extensive knowledge of medicine.  She is already able to prescribe medicine and the correct treatment for ailments such as pneumonia, leukaemia and dengue.  Selvi’s medical aptitude was discovered when the child started reading medical books for fun during the visits to her aunt place. Now, she spends at least four hours every day learning about medicines and different diseases and treatments.

The current world’s youngest doctor is Balamurali Ambati, who graduated at the age of 17 in the United States in 1995.
