"The software analyzes functional MRI scans to determine what parts of a person's brain is being activated as he or she thinks. In tests, it guessed with 90 percent accuracy which of two words a person was thinking about, said Intel Labs researcher Dean Pomerleau."

It's currently only working along side the MRI scanners, and has yet to analyze abstract thoughts, but it signals a step leap in controlling technology with our mind.

The unveiling also comes along side a bunch of other interesting Intel secret projects."
