The word telepathy has existed for hundreds of years so the word and its traditional definition have a point
whether it is useful form of communications to you or not

Telepathy requires some paranormal method of communication.
Something that is not possible within the laws of physics as we currently know them.
So building any apparatus however small and however close to brain, it is still not real telepathy.

Does putting a man-made cone on the nose of a horse make it a real unicorn?
Quite definately not.
And that does not depend on whether real unicorns exist or not.

Hope you are not offended if some stupid journalist decides that he is free to redefine the word "hacker"
if its original definition does not sound useful for him personally.
