comment Can every test be done by automation?
@Marcus we're going to have to agree to disagree with the definition of automation, then. I maintain that even with the technologies you described (as interesting as they are!) the tests remain unfeasible to automate.

comment Can every test be done by automation?
@Marcus I'm inclined to disagree. Just because something can be measured doesn't mean it can be automated. It isn't feasible to have an MRI scanner ready to measure responses from testers (or should we call them patients?) and even if it was, you only get their initial reaction once, so you'd need an endless supply of subjects to 'test'. I would say that if it involves a human during the execution, it is not an automated test. What you describe, by definition, requires a human, which is why you can't automate it.
