Thought-controlled weapon systems… but you must think in Russian.

It sounds a lot like http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20130613-3d-printing-your-thoughts/1

Good luck to them!

I've been waiting for something like this for years!

Haven't we had computer-brain interfaces for a while now already?

You might not have noticed them, since they aren't usually called 'computer-brain interfaces' - unless your name is Moss - but rather 'monitors and keyboards'...

Yes, but until this, pretty much anything that wasn't a toy was thousands of dollars, and many systems wouldn't let you access the raw data.

When I last researched this about two years ago, I priced out the parts to build an EEG kit from off-the-shelf parts, and it looked to cost around $500. As far as I know, there was no good OS software then to read any of the data, so you'd have to write that yourself as well.

This looks like it will cost about $300, which is not incredibly cheaper after two years, but still definitely cheaper, and more importantly is probably easier to set up correctly and has what looks to be a solid piece of software backing it.
