In the near future, mobile computing will benefit from more direct interfacing between a computer and its human operator, aiming at easing the control while keeping the human more free for other tasks related to displacement. Among the technologies enabling such improvement, a special place will be held by brain computer interfacing (BCI), recently listed among the 10 emerging technologies that will change the world by the MIT Technology Review on January 19, 2004.The intention to perform a task may be in fact directly detected from analyzing brain waves: an example of such capability has been for instance already shown trough artificial neural networks in Babiloni et al. (2000), thus allowing the switch of a bit of information in order to start building the control of a direct interaction with the computer.
