You may never become Xavier from the X-Men, able to read and control people's minds. But one day, using a computer interface, you could control somebody else's behavior and possibly even communicate using thought. The technology you see demonstrated in this video is the first step.
This kind of interface has already been used between two rats, as well as between a human and a rat. There's no need for brain implants or Inception-style drugs. Controller Roa wore an EEG that monitors electrical activity in his brain through the skull. With a simple thought, he sent a signal to a computer. This computer passed the signal onto the Stocco, the controllee. He wore a magnetic stimulation coil that sends powerful but harmless magnetic signals through his skull to the motor center of his brain. The result? His fingers twitched on a keyboard.
