Mindtunes - Disabled musicians compose single with a DJ using mindreading headsets
It's not going to fully read someone's mind, but what it can do is detect certain broad mental phenomena via electroencephalography that anyone can control by thinking about certain things. All it takes is to think about a certain effect -- say, a drawn-out fade effect, or a huge bassy drop -- and, once that's measured, mapping it to a computer so that that effect works every time it's thought.
The track ‘Mindtunes’ is available for download on iTunes, Amazon and other digital retailers. and proceeds go directly to the Queen Elizabeth’s Foundation for disabled people.

Gesture recognition using WiFi - WiFi Signals Allow Gesture Recognition All Through the Home
Researchers at the University of Washington have successfully created a prototype of a system that uses Wi-Fi and only Wi-Fi to detect gestures. Called "WiSee," the system cleverly measures the Doppler shifts created by human movement on regular Wi-Fi signals.
Forget to turn off the lights before leaving the apartment? No problem. Just raise your hand, finger-swipe the air and your lights will power down. Want to change the song playing on your music system in the other room? Move your hand to the right and flip through the songs. University of Washington computer scientists have developed gesture-recognition technology that brings this a step closer to reality. They have shown it's possible to use Wi-Fi signals around us to detect specific movements without needing sensors on the human body or cameras. By using an adapted Wi-Fi router and a few wireless devices in the living room, users could control their electronics and household appliances from any room in the home with a simple gesture.
