trendwatching: 1992 and mind-controlled tech toys

In this trendwatching podcast, Nora Young talks about this post at the PSFK blog, which talks about the return of early 90s style, and references a New York Times article on 1992 club nights.  That gets Nora and Cathi reminiscing about 1992 as the last period when things felt really NEW. Meanwhile, Cathi Bond talks about the sci-fi to reality trend of mind-controlled tech toys around the corner.  Engadget has this story and Nora's also found this prediction at Popular Mechanics, that 2008 will be the year EEG controlled games break out as a concept.  Cathi and Nora talk about the ways they've seen this trend start to filter out of the research lab.
