Mind Controlled Robots?

MIT has built some. I mean, they can't do that much yet - the actual experiment was monitoring and correcting a small industrial robot as it sorted things into two boxes.

The technology might be useful for advanced prosthetics, helper robots for the disabled (and the lazy), and may solve one of the biggest issues with self-driving cars - the issue of the car making moral decisions. (You don't have to be a qualified driver to think "Swerve").
