Hardly any technical development is associated with such great hopes, but also such great fears, as brain-computer interfaces. With ever better external sensors or implants, it is becoming possible to measure and evaluate signals from the brain. This opens up completely new ways of interacting with machines. With non-invasive BCIs, video games could become a whole new experience as neurogaming is already getting real.  Medical implants can help people with paralysis or Parkinson's disease. At the same time, some people fear that in the not too near future our thoughts will be read. Together with experts, we want to discuss the current state of technological development, what progress we can expect in the coming years, what hopes and fears are justified, and what an ethical use of BCIs looks like.
