Might someday be able to identify a password from an unwilling subject. Would require an implant to defeat. The tinfoil hat would be obsolete.

Why would anyone "wear in public" a device that is specifically created to input passwords for accessing secure applications. Thats just silly...

This kind of technology would be better used for stationary devices with a need for security like ATM machines, and personal computers.

Or you do a 2-factor security system that combines the brainwave detection with another method to make it more accurate than the 99%. As to how it looks, who said you had to wear it around everywhere you go, make it something small that you just hold to your temple when you need to submit a password or something .. or build them into the equipment that would use them.
