The Audeo, developed by Ambient, is a wheel chair that allows users to control its movement with just their thoughts. The breakthrough device works by using a sensor-covered neckband to identify the brain signals and wirelessly spreads them to a nearby computer for processing. This is perfect for the disabled, whether they lack the ability to speak or to move. Check out the video after the jump.

Implications - **What impact does this have for companies that don't make wheelchairs?

Technological advances in products that are designed to help those who are disabled are highly sought after. The researchers in these products want to make the person's life easier and as close to normal as possible. By incorporating technology into these products, the company can show that they do care about the person's experience as well.
