You may be aware that neuro-imagers have become much cheaper and many are available with a SDK. I think this will open up a huge gateway for much more intimate human interfaces. However, I am stumped at the practical uses and whether the human controlled interfaces will be much better to the user. A mind controlled TV remote (for hospital patients) came as an idea, but once again, I don't think it has much practical use. Could any point me to any practical uses of this device? I am sorry if I am posting in the wrong section or this is a very opened-ended question. Thanks for any input.

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

In the context of this question, neuroimager refers to a commercial grade EEG/EMG device. For example the emotiv epoch (considered a high end of what is commercially available) had 3 or 6 electrodes. The output of these electrodes is available to a developer through a software interface created by the manufacturer.
I believe that Jsn is seeking ideas of what can be done using this technology. I have completed a small iPhone app for another commercial grade EEG device - there is way too many artifacts from motion, muscle activity and poor device placement.
Practically speaking, it's a fun "toy" to play with, and it is very mobile, compared to a hundred electrode arrays.
