Shiny Poll: would you want a headset that could read your mind?

I spent this morning getting all excited about the Emotiv Epoc.

It’s headset which uses electrodes sitting on your skin to read your brain waves. Using data about the amount of activity in different parts of your mind, it can perform simple tasks like moving objects on a computer screen. In future they hope for more complex applications for the Epoc like answering the phone, making art or flipping through emails.

It is a first model and costs $299 from (though is only available in the US).

We outlined the main features here.

Well, Shiny readers, would you want one?
