AZUZ: It's the kind of thing you see all the time in movies and comic books. But technology that seems similar to telekinesis is a reality. And the company that created it thinks it could change the way we live. Brooke Baldwin and her brain demonstrate how.

(BEGIN VIDEO)

TANSY BROOK1, NEUROSKY: So, right here.

BROOKE BALDWIN, CNN CORRESPONDENT2: I am moving this ball with only my mind.

BROOK: Just try to relax just a little bit.

BALDWIN: No keyboard, no game controls, just pure brain power. This is brain wave technology taken to a whole new level by a Silicon3 Valley-based company called NeuroSky.

BROOK: It's kind of a first application of telekinesis.

BALDWIN: Engineers here have big plans to revolutionize the way people work, play and live, using just their thoughts.

BROOK: Well, the goal is to get the ball to rise and control it.

BALDWIN: Too much concentration. Relax my brain. That's tough.

And your brain waves can control bigger objects, too. This is what NeuroSky calls the brain race. I have this headset on, which is measuring my brain waves, and the second I start concentrating, this cart should move forward. Let's see. OK. That is kind of cool.

The technology is being used to help train world class athletes like the U.S. archery team. This headband monitors the athlete's brain waves, determining how focused and relaxed they are before, during and after a shot.

How many of you have seen a concrete change in the way you have been shooting since this headset?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I have.

CROWD: All of us.

BALDWIN: NeuroSky is sharing its technology with other companies, and there are unlimited4 possibilities for its use. For example, it might, one day, be used to keep drowsy5 drivers off the road.

BROOK: Say the car could detect that and do something like turn on your radio or set off a little alarm warning you that you need to pull over and get some coffee.

BALDWIN: Also in the works, stress relief. There will soon be an app for that. Imagine using this technology at home to see how relaxed your mind can get by watching your brain waves in color on your iPhone.

BROOK: I think it's a very fundamental desire that people have to move things with their mind, and everyone has always wanted to do that.
