Thought-controlled computer for disabled  soon
Washington: An innovative technology that could enable people to operate a computer without using a keyboard or mouse – only their brainwaves – have been developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev software engineering students.



The BGU technology features a helmet equipped with 14 EEG connect points that sense brain activity.



"The technology is designed to assist those who are physically disabled who might otherwise be unable to manipulate a computer mouse or keyboard," said Rami Puzis.



The student team, Ori Ossmy, Ofir Tam and Ariel Rozen, developed the prototype application for their bachelor`s degree project under the supervision BGU Prof Mark Last, Rami Puzis, Prof Yuval Lovitz and Lior Rokah.



As part of a recent demonstration, a student composed and sent a hands-free e-mail using only thought combined with the adaptive hardware.
