Submission + - Mobile Brain Scanners coming soon to a Hawking near you. (

sir lox elroy writes: A San Diego company believes it has a working, usable, brain scanner/thought recognition system. And, they want to try it out on Stephen Hawking. From the article "Hawking's face muscles are slowly failing, but soon he may not need them, thanks to technology by La Jolla-based NeuroVigil.
"I'm very enthusiastic about it," NeuroVigil Chairman Philip Low said of the iBrain.
Low created the iBrain, the world's first mobile brain scanner. Low, who first met Hawking at a conference, said he believes it can read Hawking's thoughts."
