Electric magnetic brain waves as an energy source?

Is it possbile to convert the energy of electromagnetic brain waves into energy to power a device, such as a mobile phone? And if we can use it to power it, then can we also interact with it through the same medium?

    • Jun 22 2012: ah of course i remember seeing this on the news. I knew that idea was influenced by some forgotten memory. But i wander just how far it can go?
  • Jun 22 2012: I thought mobile phones damage the brain cells? I like the concept however I'm not sure our brains could cope :/
  • Jun 22 2012: Something that is almost insignificant is very very small. There are big energy sources out there.
    So maybe you are not asking what I think you are.
    • Jun 22 2012: Thanks for the reply. I'll try to elaborate. Feel free to correct any misconceptions that I may have.Maybe the question should be; can we produce something, such as a phone, that uses a little enough energy so to be powered by the electromagnetic waves of our brain alone? Or even partially?I hope you appreciate my curiosity and have patience for my shortcomings.
