Concept of Firefox, the brain-controlled Russian fighter, from a 1977 novel
Beyond controlling a computer with your thoughts alone, and creating a helmet for diversional game-play, the U.S. army is funding a neuroscience project designed to let a commander "think" orders to subordinates.
Rather than pure telepathy, commands will have to be audibly rendered via a speaker or headset, call it 1/2 the way to completely integrated telepathy.
The idea is to speed up the command process and improve accuracy, sounding like the selling pitch for going to EDI back in the 1990's.
