Mind reading 

I just saw this: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7254078.stm

My first thought was of Lawnmower Man cyberspace addiction for gamers but then I thought how such a technology could be used for the rest of us to replace these clunky old keyboards and mice.

But then I read the bit about how the device can also assess your mood. That’s the scary part. Do you really want to write an email (or whatever emails become) to that snotty customer with the device reading your evil death-wishing mood and sending that along with the message?

Can you imagine emoticons with real emotions! Argh!
