TV Turns on with a Notion

Remember when people thought using the remote was lazy? A Chinese appliance company has come up with a lazier way to watch TV. The company made a wireless mind-reading headset to be used to control a TV set! One sensor pad is held to the person’s forehead and another is clipped to the earlobe. The mind-reading potential is actually just a measurement of brain waves and can only be used to sense if the person wants something to go up or down, in order to do anything else you need a remote. They are working on something that allows the person to change channels by thinking it as well. The Chinese company is selling the wireless mind-reader headset in China but not any further. Maybe someone else could come up with a headset for the sloths of the world to watch marathons of Grey’s Anatomy with their thoughts.
