Mind-Reading Cars from Nissan

Self-driving cars haven't made it to the streets yet, but they may already soon become obsolete. Nissan is working with the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne on a mind-controlled car that reads the driver's brain activity, eye movement, and environment to run. There is no release date set and, as you can imagine, a whole lot of kinks to work out.  -Link

I was thinking the same, Nick. I imagine that it could work if they incorporated the mechanisms that self-driving cars have--sensors that keep cars from colliding with the environment, and a preset destination point. The mind-reading aspect then seems kind of pointless to me, but we can never guess how far technology can bring us. Neuroscience is awesome.

They might one day get this to work, but only if they can find a driver who is 100% focussed on his/her driving and has a mind which is completely, utterly, entirely immune to distractions of any kind. Good luck with that - taking the kids to school may be one of those kinks they'd have trouble with.
