I used your instructables.com rc helicopter project on my website. I will reference whatever additional page you would like, also.

There are several new EEG Headsets that allow humans to control a computer with only the power of their minds! The Emotiv Epic headset released over a year ago have been used in several applications that Emotiv didn't initially market them for. Originally Emotiv sold the headsets as a gamer input device but it has received attention for it's more practical applications. I've seen several DIY posts on Instructables.com where the headsets are used for controlling wheel chairs, lawn mowers, phones, and computers. These applications are just the tip of the iceburg. The company "Thought Wired" is using the headset in combination with NOUS automation software to do a really cool home automation presentation. Check out the link below for information from Thought wired. This technology will surely improve the lives of the disabled and everyone else in the years to come.

Here are a couple of links to DIY projects, with step by step instructions, that have been done using EEG headsets. Brain controlled wheelchair and rc helicopter.
