    From TGDaily.com:

    Visitors to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver next week will be able to control lightshows at major landmarks by the power of thought alone.

    Toronto-based InteraXon has invented a headset that picks up the user’s alpha and beta waves and translates them into commands.

    “We’re like interpreters fluent in the language of the mind: our system analyses the frequency of your brainwaves and then translates them into a control signal for the computer to understand,” says the company.

    The system will be used to control lightshows at Toronto’s CN Tower, Ottawa’s Parliament buildings and Niagara Falls.
