BCIs also have great potential as the ultimate hands-free control interface for mainstream applications. Although the BCI field has enjoyed dramatic progress in the last two decades, there is great promise and much work to be accomplished in the future as we strive to perfect our interaction methods through control interface research.

2009). In a character selection task, character layout in conjunction with auto-completion and spell checking improves accuracy and lowers the key selection count for words (Felton et al. 2007). In target acquisition, relative area of cursor and target as well as rates of motion all affect task performance, particularly in dwell selection cases (McFarland et al. 2003). McFarland and Wolpaw studied considerations between speed and accuracy tradeoffs in BCIs (McFarland and Wolpaw 2003). In this study, five participants manipulated a cursor in one- or two-dimensions.

While medical technologies that augment vital bodily functions have drastically extended the lifespan of these patients, these technologies do not alleviate the mental frustration or social isolation caused by having no way to communicate with the external world. Providing these patients with brain-computer interfaces that allow them to control computers directly with their brain signals could dramatically increase their quality of life. The complexity of this control ranges from simple binary decisions, to moving a cursor on the screen, to more ambitious control of mechanical prosthetic devices.
