The technology is under development at BT's research labs in Ipswich.

Hmmm interesting, can't really see how it would be handy for the disabled, but still.

When you blink does that mean its a click?

Blink once = Click
Blick twice = Double click?

I remember seeing the brain controlled one. The user puts on a cap with a load of sensors connected to it and you can control computer functions like move the cursor and select things. That was a pretty funky bit of kit. Don't rememeber seeing that eye controlled one on that episode though?

A Motion Sensitive Laptop? What a useless idea!

I dont see the point nor the benifit of it lol
