It is obvious that a person moving a mouse cursor on a computer screen is a small accomplishment. Even a monkey can do this. What if the person is a quadriplegic controlling the mouse cursor with nothing but his or her own brainwaves? This would be interesting. It has been done before too.

A person moving mouse cursor on a computer screen is an insignificant accomplishment. Heck, even a monkey can do it.

But if the person is a quadriplegic controlling the cursor with nothing but brainwaves, now that would be interesting. And it's been done.

Brain-computer interface systems, although still in developmental and experimental stages, are becoming increasingly more powerful and applicable. Advancements in neural signaling research make it one of the hottest fields in biomedical engineering.

Being able to control electronics with nothing but your mind is amazing! This technology can also be used to restore function to paralyzed limbs. Even tough this technology is still years away, I am happy to hear news of it now.

Brain power is a misleading phrase.
Brain sensing is more accurate.
extreme force of will is not involved.
detecting the subtle brain patterns/input and responding to them.

It is very cool.
watching a monkey control a mouse cursor with his thoughts.
