Not really. You are "looking", but you don't have to move the eye to look. In fact there doesn't need to be "letters" at all. You are just "looking at" light/dark patterns and measuring the pupil response. No thinking required, which makes it perfect for people like me who don't like to think.

This is perfect. We now don't even need to move our arms to watch netflix. The peak of civilization has now been achieved.

Oh, by the way, this type of system has already been deployed for paraplegics for many years. And no, you aren't "literally thinking" about letters, you are "looking" at letters. Learn what "literally" means.

Um, no. I'll hate on the people making the calls too. Sprint Telemarkers are legal, so it isn't a problem. They don't call me. The ones that call me when I am on the do not call list are not legal. They are doing illegal things, and they know it, and they don't care. Sociopathic. There are plenty of ways to make money without doing illegal things.

While I agree with most of it, I have a small nit to pick with your comment.

The only reason the US Military uses 5.56x45 instead of 7.62x54 (the old .308 Springfield cartridge that got your (great)grandfather through World War II)

.308 is .308 Winchester, not Springfield.
30-06 was Springfield.
The dimensions of those cartridges is 7.62x51mm for .308 and 7.62x63 for 30-06.

Otherwise, your analysis is spot on.
