Control Your Games With Your Mind


Posted September 22, 2008 - By timbococ

The first Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) specifically for gaming is here. Emotiv’s EPOC headset measures electrical activity in the brain, and currently picks up over 30 different expressions, emotions and actions—allowing you to control your game with nothing but your thoughts.

Before you think of selling off your controllers, note that there appears to be a learning curve to using the device, but it will apparently “adapt to a wide variety of thought patterns,” and Emotiv has supposedly had success with “every single person” who has tried the technology.

Those who have used it agree that it is both amazing and immature technology (still needs some work before it goes mainstream). Still, this is a powerful proof-of-concept, and the possibilities are mind-blowing. If you pair thought control with the Immersive Cocoon concept, we’re talkin’ some Matrix stuff right here.
