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.

NAU, an international design group that aims to fundamentally change the way we interact with computers, is creating a virtual reality pod-thing, known as the “Immersive Cocoon.”

After the hatch (silently) slides open, a small extendible staircase will glide down to invite you inside the dome. Once inside, you’ll see a 360° seamless display and hear full 3D surround sound. The best part of all this is the inclusion of motion-tracking cameras and a motion-sensing floor platform, which will serve as the primary means of interactivity.

By now, we’ve heard about palm-size “pico-projectors” beaming out PowerPoint presentations of the future. Thanks to 3M, “the future” now refers to September 30. Although it is difficult to put a price on awesomeness, the projector, dubbed the MPro110, is set to retail for $359.

Unlike some other “pocket projectors” already on the market, 3M’s baby looks like it will actually fit in your pocket, albeit uncomfortably. The MPro110 has VGA and composite inputs; and is designed to play nice with your iPhone, PSP, digicam, etc.

According to PopSci the drawbacks here are a faded image (in a brightly-lit office setting), and the lack of an internal speaker. Still, it’s difficult to overstate the power of projecting whatever, wherever, whenever you want.

From today's "Are You Serious?" File comes this little tidbit of news; Best Buy is planning to purchase Napster for $121 million. The move is an effort to take on iTunes, which sits squarely at the top of digital music distribution with 70% of the market.

Both Napster and Best Buy have digital models in place, neither of which have really caught fire the same way Apple's iTunes has. Best Buy gets control of Napster's 700,000 subscribers and roughly $67 million in cashola. Since 2006, the music and electronics giant has been working with RealNetworks and SanDisk to put out a media player that could house their digi downloads.

i2i Stream »


In today's tech review we'll take a look at every mobile audiophile's dream come true (perhaps), the i2i Stream, a device which makes any audio equipment (speakers, MP3 players) totally wireless.

Colonel Harland Sanders honed and refined a perfect blend of herbs and spices over many years of trial and error to arrive at what we enjoy today in our KFC fried chicken products.

The original sheet of yellowing paper that contains the secret recipe is being transported via armored car and police officer escort to an undisclosed location away from its normal home in Louisville, Kentucky so that security can be bolstered when it returns. The sheet has exact measurements written out for each ingredient and was signed by the Colonel himself back in 1940 when he first developed it.

Pop the jump for the actual recipe.

Metallica has a new album dropping on Friday in stores but it will also be available for download and play with Guitar Hero III which is obviously pretty awesome. The downloaded album, a bit pricey at 1440 Microsoft points or $17.99 on the PSN, will also be forward compatible with Guitar Hero: World Tour and all its fancy, new instrument peripherals.

And just to indicate how far Metallica has slipped from their metal roots, included in the track list on Death Magnetic are songs with the titles, "Broken, Beat, and Scared," "My Apocalypse," and "The Unforgiven III." Oh, man, this album is going to be hilarious.

Esquire Cover Uses E-Ink

Posted September 8, 2008 - By TylerColfax

The October issue of Esquire has hit newsstands and it's the first magazine to ever use the E-ink technology utilized by The Amazon Kindle and the Sony Reader. Using 6 button-sized batteries sewn into the cover, a series of different flashing sequences highlight the words "The 21st Century Begins Now" which is unfortunately kind of lame. Also lame is the fact that the batteries are only set to last 90 days, after which the cover will merely just have an awkward blank space in the middle.

I think this is supposed to be exciting but it only reminds me of Pink Floyd's Pulse album with the little red blinking LED on the spine. Although they share some similarities, Pink Floyd and this magazine; Lots of hype and good design, mostly no substance on the inside.

There's only 100,000 of these babies in circulation so go grab one now if you really want one.
