Military Mindreading Computers

Wired Magazine reports:

Since 2000, Darpa, the Pentagon's blue-sky research arm, has spearheaded a far-flung, nearly $70 million effort to build prototype cockpits, missile control stations and infantry trainers that can sense what's occupying their operators' attention, and adjust how they present information, accordingly.

Strangely, as soon as the new systems were turned on and hooked up to actual soldiers, the only thing any of their monitors would show was pornography.
