Telekinesis gadgets are coming to market

The Force, it seems, is not so strong with this one.

In the virtual world of a game called Neuroboy, I'm staring out over a lagoon at an exact digital replica of a Star Wars X-wing spaceship submerged in blue water. My task: to lift that virtual object out of its murky depths using not my mouse or keyboard, but instead -- à la Luke Skywalker -- my thoughts.

Back in the real world, I'm wearing a bluetooth headset that touches my forehead with a single metal sensor. The more I relax, according to the headset's manufacturer, Neurosky, the more that small metal point will pick up my brain's alpha waves, triggering the ship to rise.

Controlling something with your eyebrows isn't telekinesis.

It's not about eyebrow movement, it's about alpha waves...
