You don't believe that helping crippled people talk online is a good thing?Nossy said:I should stop reading what Escapist staff post in the forums, they always make me lose my faith in humanity a little more. It's already bad enough our politicians dick around on their phones while they should be listening to important stuff like fixing the economy, but this...this...wow, I'm done for the day.
Perhaps, but as the EEG is a standard instrument in many hospitals and the technology is only in it's infancy, it keeps up with the EPOC before you include the hefty price tag.Fightgarr said:Yay! Inefficient ways of communication that are SO cool anyway.
I think that there is better advancement on controlling shit with your mind regarding the EPOC Headset [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDpmSiMiscA] though.

So what? You're going to sit there and tell me that paralysed people being able to communicate with the world around them isn't worth the possibility of lazy people continuing to be lazy.
Hell you're right, excuse me whilst I go back in time and prevent pain medication, spray paint, petrol and glue from being discovered/invented, because the usefulness of these items and the good that they do are clearly not worth the fact that a minority of dickheads will use them for purposes beyond what was originally intended.
I mean really, you had to be kidding right?
