Sounds convenient.

Typing while grunting makes for a real challenges, so the Army  Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center wants some smart folks to come up with alternative input gadgets controlled by brain waves or eye movements.

CERDEC, which hangs out in Aberdeen, Md., also wants to consider other “alternate human-machine interface modalities” including haptic interfaces first used in video games and conversational speech inputs  for troops on foot or in “vibration and noise challenged environments,” such as tactical vehicles.

I could really get behind the brain wave thing, which would allow me to just think a story onto a page, rather than typing.
