Talk without speaking

This wireless neckband can supposedly pick up brain signals to the vocal cords and translate them into speech. This allows you to "talk" on a phone without actually speaking.

(HT: Sullivan) I'm not completely blown away by this as Sullivan and Marc Andreessen are (no "brain exploding" here.), because the vocabulary it can recognize is limited, and it seems to take a while to activate. And of course my company, Emotiv Systems, is in the business of interpreting brain signals itself. So what might seem miraculous to you is more of a "yeah, that's cool; I can see how you might go about doing that" to me.
