This strikes me as rather exaggerated to call this "telepathy" or "mind-reading". There is no direct brain to brain interface and the "receiver" is totally unaware of what the "transmitter" is thinking (in this case trying to mentally move the right vs. left arm). The transmission is very indirect (through a rapidly flashing light presented to the "receiver's" eyeballs, not brain to brain), and if any "mindreading" is going on, it is by the computers interpreting very simplified brain wave signals at both ends, basically two distinct but unrelated brain activity states at the sender/receiver ends, one motor cortex (sender) and the other visual cortex (receiver), as a way of representing a binary 0 or 1. Thus to send even a very simple text message (forget about things like detailed images or thoughts), you would need at least 5 bits of transmitted data for each letter and basic punctuation. It would probably take 10 to 20 seconds to send even one character of a message, not exactly a fast or efficient method of communication. It would be a very slow way for a completely paralyzed person to communicate with the world, but at present that would be about it. David Listen to 'Strange Days...
