There are some research programs which have drivers wear a cap that lets you drive your car and control phone, messages, email, gps, and potentially other devices by thought.
Its happening, and the potential is huge. I'm too old to expect to be around by the time its practical, but the idea is something we have thought about for a hundred years or more.
Companies are positioning themselves to be able to take advantage of the technology with relatively simple current gadgets. Control of the playstation by thought? Its going to happen!
Wouldn't a driver gets fined excessively for wearing such a cap, because it keeps the driver occupied with lots of things other than driving?
In many countries people do get into real trouble for actions like eating pizza, being on the phone, using SMS, writing e-mails, checking a calendar and drinking all at the same time as someone is driving. Judging from the initial reactions to Google's glasses there is quite a lot of opposition to overcome, before consumers can finally make use of integrated devices like what you describe effectively. The future may be not so bright.
