They make a wireless headset that lets users do things like control the mouse and send emails just by using their brain.  The company says it reads conscious and non-conscious thoughts.  Reuters reports LucasFilm sent two cease and desist letters already, but the company hasn't done enough to satisfy the studio. Now, they're facing a $5 million lawsuit and they've ticked off George Lucas.
