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.
